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

Do not stay here!!! We very nearly booked this Hotel but after reading the reviews we changed our mind. We had to pass this hotel to get to ours and it looks horrible. Tatty, dirty windows and it looks like the hotel needs a total makeover, in fact i thought it was a derelict building and was so glad we... 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
