My husband & I stayed in this hotel in December. While the hotel was very reasonably priced I would have been happier spending a little more money to get a little more. I thought the rooms could use some major updating. The carpet was kind of gross-& the walls could use a new coat of paint. It wasn't that the room was dirty- it just looked worn. The rooms very small- basically the bed took up the whole room & there was a tiny closet. Surprisingly the bathroom was an OK size & looked better than the room. There was not a lot of street noise as the hotel is located on a quiet block, but the walls are thin. We were woken up a lot by doors opening & closing from other rooms. The lobby area is small but nice. The location of the hotel is not bad... it's about a 15 minute walk from the Opera and there's a metro just down the block.
I did not find the staff to be friendly at all. There's a small bar in the lobby which the front desk staff will get you a drink from but be warned it closes at 12 on the dot and you must leave the area (the lobby) at 12. We were traveling with another couple whom we don't get to see very often & we ordered a drink after returning back from dinner. It was a little before 12 and we knew that we would order our 1 drink & that was it. But I was quite surprised to be told we couldn't stay & finish our drinks or conversaton once the clock struck 12am. We weren't being loud or disturbing anyone, except the guy at the front desk whom I suspect wanted to go to sleep behind the desk.
All in all- this is not a hotel I would recommend.
