It's a mid range hotel. Average in terms of price/condition. But come on, no second towel or slippers or even an electric kettle? Just some basic necessities for a 80 euro room is not much to ask.

Disappointing stay in a well located hotel
To start with positives: hotel is well located with easy access to the sights and were it not for the negatives, it would be a decent place to stay: The negatives: 1 - one of the two lifts was out of order throughout my stay. This meant either a v long wait for a lift or using the stairs (which aren't signed and I found by lucky accident). 2 - insufficient front desk staff - either no-one there and an instruction to go next door or a huge queue - impossible to get minor niggles resolved quickly and easily. 3 - I deliberately booked a room with a king size bed and was given two singles. I wasn't informed of this before being given the key. On discovering the room was not what I booked and not satisfactory, I waited ages for a lift to go downstairs to reception... Only to find a queue of about 10 people. I decided not to waste my time and to tolerate the room. I shouldn't have had to do this. 4 - the hotel is hot. Uncomfortably, stiflingly hot. This is adjustable in the room, but the best I managed was to get the temperature down to sweltering but tolerable. I did not sleep well as a result. 5 - tolerating anti-social behaviour from guests. On both nights of my stay, I was kept awake by very noisy guests slamming doors and shouting in the corridor at 2am, 4am, 6am... Absolutely nothing was done about it. On one occasion I went down to reception to raise the matter and was just told "people are unbelievable". Yes, they are... But how about intervening so guests can sleep?

The hotel was decent and in a great spot, as it was easy to walk round and also take public transportation. The hotel could work on the cleanliness more and updated furnishings. Other than that, it was a good pick.
