So our trip was somewhat oddly planned out, which meant that we stayed in this hotel three separate times and in three separate rooms.
The good: the ladies in the dining room/restaurant were very nice, and two of the gentlemen at reception were also quite nice and helpful. The rest of the reception staff I found to be marginally helpful and sometimes quite short with us, particularly some of the men working at night. The food was good (we had breakfast and dinner there a couple times over the course of our stay). It is brought in from a nearby restaurant, but didn't take too long, and was quite delicious. The hotel is very close to a metro station, and one metro stop from a rail station, which is very convenient. Finally, the price is shockingly low.
The bad: the rooms are cute/tastefully decorated, but TINY. The first and second rooms we had barely had any space around the bed. We had two fairly big suitcases, and were constantly having to crawl over the bed or around each other to get around the room. (We saw some twin bed rooms while they were being cleaned and they were quite a bit bigger actually, but were right in front of the elevator... More on that later) The bathroom was also small. I am used to a small shower in my own home, but the ones in the hotel were so cramped that I constantly bumped into the shower walls. Word of advice: ask to stay in a room away from the elevator, because you can hear the "pings" of the elevator all night... You can even clearly make out conversations occurring in the elevator from inside the room with the door shut.
The ugly: there's no ugly. Overall, it was a decent stay, especially for the ridiculously low cost. The staff was professional (some much more friendly/helpful than others), meals good, location convenient, but rooms small.
