We were given keys to this 'hotel' when we had refused to sleep in two rooms at the Vivaldi Hotel. The Vivaldi is the sister hotel and it is run by the same people. I have reviewed this separately. On entry the Paganini hotel stank of diarrhea and vomit. There was an dirty tin bucket and mop outside of a... More

I'm not sure where to begin... this one was like the worst hotel i've stayed in so far. The room wasn't clean, the bed clothing had hairs on it which makes me believe it wasn't washed also, the floor was dirty etc... It's far away from city center and the nightlife... Don't be fooled with the price, pay a little... More

Is far from the center, but there are a wonderful park. The staff was friendly, but not eager to help you in any matters or matters. Breakfast for 4 euros terrible, better to walk to the nearest cafe. The room is very small, dirty curtains. But pleased with large windows and a comfortable bed. although the sheets were in the...

No elevator, cleaning rooms is a lie, staff if not nice, far away from nightlife on foot and it's expensive. Horrible stairs to the room. Smell of drugs in some rooms. Rooms are too small. No sound protection. Avoid at all costs. I recommend other hotel even it's more expensive

Checked in for a couple of days, Where do I begin? i knew not to expect too much because of the price. Absolutely disgusting, The Chinese receptionist was too busy with the computer and the phone while we waited standing 30 mins to check in. After the 20 mins me and my partner exchanged glances wondering if its worth staying... More

We were on the 5th floor of an unstedy stairway. No lift. The room was really small. I asked for a twin and got a double. I ended up sleeping in the same bed as my 21 yr old son. There was mould on the walls in the shower, quite a lot too. There was dirty curtains up and muck... More

We booked a 3 bed room, we had separate bathroom with towels and everything. The room was clean but DON'T look outside of the windows if you are staying on the ground floor because it's full of garbage. The window was broken but it didn't bothered because it was not could outside. Somehow the fire alarm was raised but luckily... More

I get it, it was 100 Euros/night so I didn't expect too much...bed was so uncomfortable that when i laid on it, I basically slipped off the bed because there was no support. It kept caving onto the floor for where it was the heaviest - I weigh 115 pounds. My back hurt so much every morning but couldn't chance... More

Three good things can be said about the Paganini/Vivaldi Hotel - everything about the room was clean, it was surprisingly quiet considering its location and it was just 5 minutes walk from the museums. The hotel was more like a downmarket boarding house which at over £80 a night was well over priced. The single bed was awful, the curtains... More
