            Location. Staff was very polite & helpful.

            Everything else. Bathroom had a constant bad smell (coming from drain?) Bathroom was very small.. Was awkward just moving about. Don't go here if you're expecting something nice. Staff was very polite, though. Hotel is overpriced, in my opinion, but it was the only one available in my price range for this particular weekend.

            I believe it will be easy to find a better hotel.

            They don't have wifi in the room, but they advertised as they have. The receiptient makes you feel that you are not welcome......

            The flow of water from the shower head was strong. The breakfast was good. Free parking.

            Room was very small, hardly any room to move around. Very difficult to find because of the small, one-way street on which it is located.

            Location OK.

            Old stylish, but not good taken care. On our first day, the bathroom was full of water after the first shower, total mess. From the 2nd day on, they changed us to a bigger room, but with a bathtube and no shower. Beds are unconfortable and pillows too hard. To make it worse, when we paid with credit card, they used the old method (not online transaction, but the paper version where they copy the card with carbon paper) and told us 2 days afterwards that the card was not accepted, forcing us to send either the card-data through email (UNSAFE) or making a bank transaction (and we don't have bank account in the EU, meaning crasy taxes from banks in Brazil).

            Rooms are big and clean, big balcony

            Our bathroom smelled very bad, like there was a problem with the drains. Staff was not very friendly.

            Good location

            Awful cancellation rules of the hotel

            It is in a reasonably good location, but nowhere special.

            The hotel was simply awful. On check-in I had to wait 15 minutes to get to my room on the 5th floor because one of the lifts was not working and the other one had a capacity of 3 people max. My room was shabby, and the bathroom was so small it was laughable. The airconditioning was not very effective and the room was badly insulated from street noises. Breakfast was mediocre. I had booked for 3 nights but left after one. The alternative accommodation I secured was not all that much more expensive, but incomparably more comfortable. This place should be shut down.
