            Helpful staff. Residential neighborhood location. Nice breakfast.

            Very little difference between the deluxe and superior rooms except price. No bathtub in deluxe room.

            Receptionist Helena was very help full person. That probably the only good thing happen in this very poor hotel.

            Pure management (I mean the general manager), pure location, very pure breakfast and ect. There is only one floor in a living building belongs to this hotel, that means under your head is a private apartments, where the constructions and over noises continues all the time. Heaters is not working at shower rooms, so it's very chili to use, you just fell frozen. There is a room service menu in the folder, but in fact it's never available, very very pure breakfast compare to the room price paid. Small rooms, pure location, noisy surrounding and the management ho do not cares of hospitality.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            The location is good not so far from shopping street. The room provides comfortable space. Big bathroom.

            It would be nice if breakfast could provide egg dish I.E. scramble egg, boiled egg.Pastries are not fresh.
