                  Hotel was close to the train station and affordable. The staff was helpful and provided a hair dryer upon request. The room was large.

                  Traffic noise and loud voices from the street kept us up till almost 2 am. The windows were drafty and needed to be covered better. The twin beds in the triple room were basically camping cots.

                  My room was awful, the breakfast was very basic and the table cloths were dirty.

                  The hotel looked dirty and rooms were filthy. Breakfast food was mediocre at best.

                  This hotel is awful.

                  Rude female staff member was unpleasant to all and room was very small and could be cleaner.

                • Good location and great stay. Friendly staff, room conditions were bad and could use a renovation.

                  It´s a simple historic old hotel, no hot food.

                • Great location, good value and among other also very friendly staff there. Our room was adequate.

                  This hotel is extremely old and dated.
