This is really a very simple backpackershotel. You get a room with a bed and a shared bathroom in the corridor. The room was relatively clean but outside the room the floor was dirty. Everything was worn out and very old. The bathroom was combined with toilet. Very primitive and not maintained. It is not possible to have a breakfast... More

I am gonna echo previous reviewers. The official photos are PHOTOSHOPED. The rooms look very different to what u can c here! I stayed there one nite and it was more than enough. First and foremost if you travel with a dog, be aware! They don't have a clear price list and I was told first to pay 25 eur... More

Its name is B&B, but actually it provides no meal. There's even no kitchen in this hotel. They told me that I could pay by card, but their card machine was broken. The heater in my room was also broken. There's always a smell of smoking in the building. Far away from city center. The staff refused to give me... More

Unfriendly area, no payment by card, no receipt, no lift, very bad smell, cold room, dark inside and outside the hotel. Fortunately I stayed there just for two nights. There are many other accomodations in the city wich are much better and even cheaper!

The photographs of this guesthouse on this website are fake. There is no almirah in the room, the TV remote doesn't work and there are lot of mosquitoes. Overall it a dirty building which you can't guess from outside. Avoid!!!!!!

This is definitely not a three-star accomodation, not even one star: The rooms do not even have their own bathrooms! The TV did not work, there was only one power outlet and the bed mattress was all worn out.

The room was clean and comfortable, with nice furnitures and a modest shared toilet (one for three rooms). The building is quite old and you can easily hear guests in others rooms, be prepared. No elevator, it could be a problem with heavy luggages! It's 10 minutes far from the nearest metro by walking, but the district it's not really... More

First of all, the website pictures do not lie. The room was spacious, clean and modern The problem lies with what's outside the room. There is only 1 member of staff at a time, so if you ring in advance and he's busy, the machine picks up the phone. Likewise, as the door is usually closed, he may not come... More
