Probably was originally an apartment building and now it's like student gigs. It's so basic that even the 'vending' machine is a display case. It is devoid of any charm. The staff are friendly...

Looks bad. Shower broken. Dirty towels. Wifi not working. Bed not properly made up. Not nice surroundings. And this are just a few of all the things that make this hotel NOT worth going to. Dont go there.

The Alton is near healthcare facilities. which may make it convenient for people visiting loved ones. It is super clean, and secure. It is on the A tram line, between two nearby stops. This is not a luxury hotel, but a practical one. The rooms are of decent size, and the staff is extremely proud of their work and helpful...

This is most definitely not a 3 star hotel. Stayed here during the European Championships and from the second I checked in I couldn’t wait to check out.

Stayed for 2 nights, right opposite the Hospital where we had an appointment so very convenient. The city tram route is right outside the front door with the nearest stop only 100 yards away. There is an underground secure car park at a charge of 9 euros a night, so just left the car and used the tram to travel...

A group of us stayed here for the Europaen Championships and some sightseeing. The only positive was that the tram station was right outside and the centre of town was 5 minutes away - when they weren't on strike:). We accepted the price would be inflated because of the football but booked based on the website pictures and description what...

This hotel was little short of disgraceful. Tiny single beds in a twin room. Filthy carpet and no curtains (flimsy blind). No food on Saturday or Sunday. I could go on but it makes me angry to remind myself. Probably the worst hotel experience I have ever had. Please check my other reviews to see this is not a normal...
