Great lobby, mediocre staff, but the rooms, oh dear...
But the worst are the rooms, and the hotel *completely* fails to inform on their website on what you have to expect:
- Rooms to the North face a noisy street. *These* are the most quiet rooms.
- Rooms to the East face a huge apartment block under construction. Heavy noise and workers looking straight into your room from 12 meters distance.
- Rooms to the south face a busy railway line.
- Rooms to the West face a huge construction site, with massive noise penetrating into the room. And of course, more workers just in front of your window.
Oh yeah, and then there are the rooms (1/3 of all rooms!) to the inner "courtyard". This is in fact a bottomless pit with no daylight whatsover. Absolutely no daylight, only one single electric floodlight shedding some dim artifical light. It's like looking into the inside of an oil tanker. In most European countries, this would not even have received planning permission as hotel rooms.
Should I mention that there's a huge construction site on top of the building itself, too`?
Approximately 90% of all rooms are either very noisy, or pitch dark. Not that the hotel would mention it, and not that prices would go down.
Do not believe the hotel website, there are no images of what you have to expect. No need to talk about the impertinent reception staff. No need to mention the windows that were so dirty that you could hardly see the street.
This was one of the worst hotel surprises I had for a long time.
