Arrived at this "4 star" hotel for a 3 night stay - thank god it wasn't any longer! We had booked a triple room for three people. When we arrived it became very clear that our room had been given to someone else even though they were checked in at 2:30pm. Firstly the hotel tried to squeeze three of us... More

The hotel is old, and I mean it in a negative way, the rooms are average in size but they show signs of heavy wear, skirting coming off, toilet falling apart, hot water only in the shower and not the sink, limited amount of sockets, annoying internet cards, black mold in the bathroom. The elevators leave a lot to be... More

This hotel is not as bad as some reviews would suggest. The rooms are very basic (why no lamps around the lightbulbs?)) but sufficient and the breakfast was excellent. We stayed here for 3 days but only received a one-day wifi card for one person, which was a bit strange. The neighborhood was like a huge building site at the... More

The hotel is rated as a 4 stars hotel but I would rather rate it 2 stars or less!! mmm... From where do I start? White lighting everywhere and two elevators only that looks like a service elevator and most of the time only one is working. The breakfast restaurant is terrible. The corridors are not air conditioned and to... More
