The location can't be faulted for train stations and the Old Town but the facilities are basic at best. The room was too small for the bed and you practically had to sidle around sideways. Also the toilet was not fixed to the floor and wobbled every time you sat down. It is extremely reasonably priced, but that is no... More

The best thing about the hotel is the location- this is a fact. Although it can get noisy, especially around 5-6 am when garbage trucks do their rounds. I didn't expect a fancy hotel, but I wasn't prepared to go into 1989 amenities... My biggest disspointment was the lack of a heating system in the room and prepare: bathroom. I... More

This is more or less just what it professes to be: a two-star hotel. There's no dedicated reception, you check in at the bar and no phone in the room if you need to contact someone at the hotel (as I did, when people in the room next door loudly argued for several hours into the wee hours of the...

The hotel Is right in front of the Train Station and that's all Staff is not friendly at all, it seemed I was sleeping on a stone covered in sheets (my side of the bed was too hard), the pillow was paperthin, noisy all night long, with people arrasting heavy objects in the bar below the hotel, not a good...

Called for a drink and food but decided against eating as it was expensive. Drinks were expensive too, no surprise. They were very busy but the service was quick enough. Won't be rushing back unless their prices come down. (Never stayed in the hotel so not able to comment).

Just returned from a four night stay at this hotel. After reading some of the reviews we thought the location and the price were still reasonable enough to give it a go..how wrong were we! We stayed in a room on the second floor that overlooked the metro. From morning until morning there were drunks stood around, one minute best... More

We booked months in advance a twin bedded room only to arrive and find none available, we were give a room with a double bed than sunk badly in the middle, oh our poor backs. Although the location is good, they appear to be more interested in the serving drinks and meals and not looking after ones accommodation needs. Because... More

We ate at the Napoleon and the service was very good and the waiter was very funny and friendly. Having said that, the food was poor, the steak and burgers our group had were very poor. The biggest killer was the 9 euros a beer we were charged. Not good beer and way over priced. My advice, there are far... More

We only had a meal in the Napoleon - glad we weren't staying there, even if it is convenient for the station. The staff were very friendly but the meal was truly poor - I'm sure mine had been re heated several times, and my husband's was just a large quantity of melted cheese poured over a slice of ham....
