Overall, it was really nice. The bed was comfortable and the bathrooms were cool. My room was a bit dusty - but I have seriously bad allergies, so I'm very sensitive to things like that. The hotel breakfast was good. I had breakfast in the hotel 4 times, but for some reason I was only charged for 2 (not complaining). I let the gentleman who checked me out know that I went more often, but he still charged me for only 2.
The location is great if you're going to be frequenting the Midi train station. I would stay more in the center of the city if you're not going to be using the Midi station all that often. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Most of the reviews I saw talked about how bad the area is given the high occurrence of pick-pocketing. But as long as you are paying attention to your surroundings and belongings (like you should be in any major city), you'll be fine.
I had a room facing the train station and had no issues with noise. Also, the wifi was excellent (I was worried about that given what other reviewers have said). I was using multiple devices at the same time and had no connectivity issues whatsoever.
