Ridiculous rooms! I had to change the room 2 times. 1st room- the door to the balcony could not be closed at all, because it was broken. 2nd room- the wire of the air condition was cut and just left like this?!? 3 room was okey, at least it was answering to the hotel description in Booking.com Considering the price...

Well it was cheap. And it is in the center of the city. WiFi is ok. I cannot find any other advantages. It is old but not nice building. It is not very clean. The furniture is old. Shower doesn't look good.

Although I love the intact 70s/80s looks, torn off wallpapers, wooden panels and brown beige color theme, part of me wish that they would have invested in just one renovation since 1978. The eastern bloc interior design is truly charming. Midget size chairs, marble pvc tiles, and discreet lightning actually creates a somewhat 'cozy' environment, but the leftover sockets and... More
