When the location is the only thing you got going, it sure isn't much.
Situated next to the square of Torgalmellingen, with all it's loud music and noise. This no-charm hotel offers budget style service, rooms, bathrooms etc. The shower dep. is so small, a 5 year old would hardly fit.
From the cold welcome of some "dudes" with tobacco lips, more interested in their ongoing conversation, to the good bye, this was a totally utterly forgettable experience.
I offered a couple of remarks about my room, but the response was a mindless "yeah - serious?!"
The ladies attending upon departure were just as indifferent. And who on earth came up with the idea of hanging big lamps in front of the reception desk!!?? If you're over 175 cm you get to stare in to those big huge balloons in stead of seeing the person on the other side of the counter... (maybe just as well...). Just as silly as the enormous bed side lamps, filling up every square cm of the bed side table. Just great. Who did design this stuff, Mickey Mouse?
Actually, come to think of it, the bed was good. And the room was clean.
In fairness, the breakfast at the adjacent Egon's was ok, sort of. Or the coffee was. Lousy service, ran out of juice, no more eggs & bacon, didn't tidy my table for 30 minutes and so on. One "executive" waitress talking loud and making noise, but more interested in drinking coffee than being useful.
Maybe I was grumpy, maybe they had a bad day. I don't know and I really don't care. It's bye bye, don't think we'll meet again. Sorry.
