We wondered what we had booked when the taxi driver kept driving for an hour from the airport at midnight and lost his way. Eventually he rang hotel and found it for us then charged 55euros. Turns out the train station is around the corner so if we had arrived earlier in the day we would have taken the train.... More

This is my second time staying here because the room is big, price is good and close to the metro. There is no daily cleaning. Because these are students, sometimes they make loud noises in the hallway, laughing, talking and banging on the doors till midnight. One improvement - you can purchase lunch and / or dinner buffet ticket for... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and were very satisfied, we got everything we expected. The room was basic but big enough for 2 people, with a new furniture (there were even 2 big wardrobes in the room), with a shower and toilet en suite, and a free wi-fi access. The neighbourhood was very quiet and calm therefore nothing disrupted... More

Breakfast was good with a large choice, easy link to the metro line. Access to common room, computers, free wifi and a gym which was good. Was quiet and located next to a park and some historical grounds. Also got to see some wild pigs roaming the streets which was funny, they live in the historical grounds and had escaped.... More

We stayed here for 6 nights. We got a transfer from airport, would've probably been difficult to find without this. However, it's only a 5 minute walk to the metro, down the hill, turn right and keep walking straight until you see the metro station for Mundet. From here you can use a t-10 ticket, ignore the zones thing, just... More

they provided nice breakfast and large room. But the hotel is uphill so it's not suitable for people who have big luggages. (Like us) The receptions were rude and not helping us at all. Which made us feel pretty upset. But it's still worth the money.

Clean and calm place, the staff was okay. Not that far away from the metro station. My room had a view of a hill and houses, animals nearby - quite amusing to hear hens in the morning. There was breakfast included.

To be honest, this place should be called A-bore-a. Too many rules, to the extent you have a laminated piece of paper on your table that lists the rules to abide by in the dining room. No alcohol is a bit of a downer as well. Food is extremely sub standard. Table tennis and pool tables are extremely tatty. And... More
