First off, what do you expect for 11 Eur person/night with breakfast included, a 5-star hotel resort perhaps? Keep dreaming. Meanwhile, in the real world, this is very budget friendly place for staying a couple of days. Sure, the beds are too hard, only one window opens in the entire room and the bathroom (though enormous) lacks any sort of... More

The breakfast buffet was very good, good parking. The hotel prices are very favorable. Quick easy access to the city center. The staff is friendly and well prepared. Hotel is good for mall prices.I was satisfied!

Not even worth the name of an hotel. Indeed, the letter "L" is not lighted, so it is a "hote". It's an old, dirty hostel. The beds fall apart, the towels are gray, with holes and fall apart into threads; if you're able to turn a shower on, you're not able to turn it off. We asked for another room,... More

The worst hotel I've been ever. Dirty, smelly ugly rooms! Something remained from 70's. Pictures are simply fake! The biggest cheat in Hotel business I've experienced ever. Keep out and avoid to book it! After 20 minutes we left. The only good thing was the free wifi, which helped to find another hotel. Receptionist guy was nice, but what he... More

Hotel has good location, it is not far from the center and very close ( no more than 50 m) to the tram stop. Stuff of the hotel is also very kind. I would recommend it mainly to young, undemending people with low budget. Rooms has only basic equipment, but if you are looking only for a plece to stay... More

My friends stayed in this hotel for New Year holidays for 3 days. I've seen rewievs here so I was prepared. It looks like a mental institution but has good location and nice personel. Those are two only advanteges of this hotel. Rooms are very basic but what you pay that's what U get. Still 15 minutes away from downtowm... More

First: When we arrived I told the taxidriver to drive to Hotel Start. He looked at me and said; I think you mean Hotel Stary? And when I arrived, I knew why he asked. The frontside of the hotel looked like an old building that hasnt been renovated in several years. The reseption looked okey but very old and in... More
