BAD SERVICE! The worst breakfast any of us have ever had at a hotel, dated rooms, terrible location, all around awful really. Stay closer to town if you want to be within walking distance of ANYTHING! Even a cafe is miles away.

I have stayed here several times, the night manager is one of the rudest men I have ever encountered. Shouting at customers, slamming doors and slamming his hand on the counter. The rest of the staff are lovely, it's a shame he has to let down the place. In all my years on this earth I have never met a... More

I've delayed writing this review since I've been confused about my feelings. Objectively, there was plenty to criticise: broken fan in bathroom, locked room safe deposit box, no ice in bar, no glasses in bar - all things that in a more professionally-run hotel would never have occurred. But subjectively we quite liked it, there was an atmosphere of cheerful... More

We didn't experience all of the bad things in the other reviews (maybe they have sorted some out) but it wasn't the best of hotels. The general rooms were fine and clean, but the bathroom was a bit of a nightmare. It was small, with no where to hang the shower head, so you had to hold it as you... More

This is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The hotel is not near anything. Upon arriving we were told that there was no hot water and would be rectified shortly. Two days later we still did not have hot water despite the hotel manager stating that it was fixed, cold brown water came out when the... More

Basic and with outdated decor, but clean. Cleanliness is more important to me than decor. Nice room for the price. Nice view of the river from sixth floor room. Great front desk staff-- helped us navigate bus routes. Comfortable bed, but I did not get much sleep due to the noise. The neighbors TV kept me from sleeping, as well... More

Very moderate rooms definitelly not four stars hotel. They should invest some money in lamps and especially in the showers. We had a room with the smallest shower I have ever seen. You couldn´t move in that narrow space. Breakfast very poor- if you came later you had to wait for everything. Quite impolite staff in the breakfast room. They... More
