My friend and I booked this place back in May for a two-night stay in September. It looked just fine -- small but well outfitted -- from the photos, and we must have missed the really bad reviews.
The room was beyond small. There was barely enough room to move about with the two of us and our luggage (we had just a carry-on and one suitcase each, plus a guitar). All the pictures depict nightstands: I would like to know where our nightstand was. The only surface was the tiny "table" that held the TV (which we never watched): there was about 1 ft x 1 ft of space on that and my friend used it. We were constantly climbing over things and I had to leave everything in or on my bags on the floor as there was nowhere to put anything.
The beds were lumpy; the mattresses were god knows how old. I could not sleep the first night as my mattress was hitting me in a pressure point in my lower back. The pain didn't go away no matter how much I adjusted and moved around. The second night I switched beds with my friend. Her mattress was lumpy, too, but not as bad.
The shower was in the room, which was completely carpeted. (I don't get that.) There was no place at all to hang our towels--or jackets, for that matter: no hooks, no chairs. The shared WC down the hall was tiny and had one hand towel for everyone's use. (Not sanitary.)
I thought the requirement to leave one's key with the front desk attendant was odd, but it worked fine for us.
I liked the breakfast. The toast, beans, eggs, cereal and tea were great. We never had much time for breakfast, unfortunately, plus there was limited seating, so we didn't want to overstay and make others wait.
There was (to my friend's surprise) towel (and we presume sheet) service. This place felt much more like a hostel than a hotel. (I've stayed in a few hostels in Europe; this was my first time staying in a hotel in Europe, though, so maybe they just do things differently?)
Room 201 is bad, I can say that. (The rooms are not all equal, I see from the photos.)
