          Individual guest reviews

          • Nice view to the cathedral, decent hotel and the lady at the reception was extremely kind and professional. Room was apparently clean, breakfast was pretty good.

            Very used bed linen and just a crumby old bar of soap. Poor wireless connection.

          • Near the City Center and nice stuff. The price was good and staff were friendly. The bathroom was also spacious.

            Unfortunately the hotel is of a 2 star quality and rooms are rather old.

            Not worth the money you have to spend here.

          • Great location and view, many TV stations. Good value for money and friendly staff. The bed was very comfortable, the waitress was kind.

            No air conditioning in rooms made very uncomfortable given the humidity of the city, the price of the hotel was much too high and tub curtain was not clean. Poor breakfast that was cold.

          • The location is very good, metro as well as bus station are outside of the hotel's door and the staff is friendly. The rooms are clean.

            The decor is very outdated, also the breakfast is very expansive and nothing to write home about, price wise is a bit expensive. S interior is quite old and no hot water jug for tea making.
