For what we paid and being able to book at such short notice following an air strike we really couldn't complain. The rooms were massive and had good facilities, however it was rather dated. The bed was really comfortable and allowed me to get a great nights sleep. The staff seemed a little formal, as if to suggest the hotel... More

You get what you pay for in life. If you want a 5 star, luxury hotel, don't book here. If you can see past the tiredness of the hotel, book it. The key for me is the location and this hotel is perfect. An easy walk into the city centre and an even easier walk to Baria Alto, about 15... More

The hotel maybe had 4 stars in the 1970s, but they did not renovate much since. The good thing is the breakfast, they have a self-serving buffet with lots of options. The bad thing was the general aspect (carpets with coffee stains, old furniture, slow and small elevators). Wi-fi was ok. A little bit overpriced for the quality. Location is... More

first impression was very bad, but the staff offered us a solution. The hotel is really old, and I do believe it was great, but like 15 years ago... a lot of work there is needed to earn 4 star. Went for a breakfast only one morning, it was excellent.

Good, polite people at the reception to welcome us. were very helpful in guiding us for information around the city. Breakfast was ok for the price, House keeping staff was good to clean the rooms everyday. Connectivity to the hotel from airport and city centre as well as the city sightseeing buses were quite near.

The hotel is located on the slope, so you have to walk uphill from the Metro station and its a long walk. Its very exhausting walking uphill with your luggage. Its cheap compare to the other hotels around it. The hotel is old, with narrow corridor and small room. Carpet is really worn and old furniture. The breakfast is ok... More
