Close to the train station and metro. Had to wait a hour past check in for room to be ready. Other than that everything was fine.

Very Good8.0
Location & staff are good. Hotel is old but clean.
It’s more of a hostel. The building and rooms are very old and a little shabby. However, the service and staff are super friendly! The location is beyond perfect as it is a walking distance from tourist attractions and most importantly the train station.

Too noisy
A review should be honest to help other travellers. I don't like to give a bad review but the truth is our stay was not good. We didn't get much sleep both nights due to the noise from the surrounding rooms and the hallway. We soon realised the people in the other rooms were not shouting, just talking relatively loudly. We could hear toilets being flushed too. The walls must be paper thin! The one thing you want from a room is to be able to get a good night's sleep and that was not the case. The water was also lukewarm in the shower. On a more positive note, the staff were really friendly, the buffet breakfast is good and the hotel is close to the railway station. Sorry but the above represents our stay.

employees were nice. Location convenient. Breakfast good and sufficient. Pictures on booking website look nothing like the room. Bed uncomfortable. Pillows flat. Blanket really old. Shower leaking to the floor. Floor/walls dirty. Place needs renovation or at least good clean up

The hotel is on a floor of a building with other hotels and private apartments. The pictures are nothing like the rooms. Do not stay here if you're a light sleeper, you can hear everything including the coffee machine at breakfast starting at 7am everyday.
