I got here for business and decided to stay at the hilton due to its location (which is great). Upen arrival, the frist room I got was smelly (probably bleach) and had the view of a prison yard (the roof of the second floor was accesible from my window and surrounded by walls). I asked to switch rooms (I was going to stay there for 3 nights) and got another room on the same floor which also smelled like bleach (much stronger smell this time). After opening the window and waiting half an hour I went down again to the front desk and asked for a different room. Out of desperation (It was getting late) I even offered to pay for a club room if needed). Eventually I got a room on the 4th floor which didnt smell. The front desk people were actually very nice in doing all the switches.
The overall atmosphere is really depressing, which makes sense for a mostly business hotel. the bar/restaurant is very bad. I had dinner there one night (burger) and was very sorry I did that. The burger (how hard is that?) was as bad as it gets. The hotel is very old and feels like it could use some renovations. For the price I paid (close to 200) I expected something nicer than that. The room service was lacking. The coffee kit was not refilled and when I called the frontdesk about it in the morning they said 'its coming right up' and it didnt come right up. Or at all.
I would not stay here again! Even if it means I need to take a metro in the morning. I would not stay here again.
