Location only good thing about the hotel, central but definitely not Grand. Very shabby and damp double room at back of hotel, filthy carpet and bathroom, no hairdryer, smelt musty and damp. Door handle to bathroom not fixed on and not enough room to move! Glad we only had to stay for one night. Breakfast okay but problems with the... More

Ive booked a double room and paid 73 euros to stay just for one night. The bed was comfy but thats where the positive ends. The was either freezing cold or boling hot, so could not user for shower, the water pressure was absolutely appalling, very weak to have a shower, I spent 25 minutes inside and couldnt shower me....

You get what you pay for, suitable for friends who don't plan to spend much time in the room. WiFi worked ok, beds were comfy enough and the location is ideal. The downsides were the facilities, the noise. The rooms are old but adequately maintained. Bathroom was poor but that was to be expected for the price.

Me and my boyfriend booked a room at this hotel from a booking website where everything looked nice for a 3 star hotel. However when we arrived it seemed we had traveled back in time 30 years. Everything looked old and it was quite dirty (at least our room). We could see there were stains on the floor carpet that... More

I don't know where to start: elevator out of order (useful when your room is at 4th floor), the poverty of the room.. The bed is awful as hell. I've never had a so horrible night in a hotel. The smell is horrible, the mattress is totally broken. You've got only one electric socket, at the other end of the... More

This hotel is only 5 minutes from the central station, good location and price for me. The room looked perfectly new, I asked in the reception and they told me the room got renovated a week before. In my opinion they should have done the bathroom also it looked really old fashioned, however the room itself was small but very... More

The hotel certainly isn't charming, but it is reasonably priced. Both price wise and appearance wise it looks more like a hostel than a hotel. The carpet was stained, but the bed linen was clean, as well as the bathroom facilities. The receptionist was friendly.

Whilst the breakfast buffet at the hotel was okay, the rest of our stay was quite unpleasant. The staff initially had got our booking wrong, putting us in a twin room instead of a double, and after we had viewed the room and asked to change, the staff gave us key cards that didn't even work. Our initial impression of... More
