Ugh. Where to begin. I'll start out by saying I read every review about this place before I booked. A lot were negative but I thought it was just people in a bad mood complaining. Plus, a lot of reviews were good too. So we decided to give this place a shot. Bad idea. Bottom line, we'll be staying somewhere else next time.
My boyfriend and I stayed here from January 9th til January 12th of 2013. This hotel is not "walking distance" from the train station. No way. Website advertised that and we disagree! So we had to walk a lot to get there. And the walk is straight through the ghetto! It was terrible. So we got there and checked in and got to our room (we were on the floor below the lobby). The room was small but it was fine. It was just us two so we had enough room. The water heater for coffee/tea took forever for us to figure out. The button that turns it on was broken. But not a big deal, we made it work. The bathroom was small, but again, we didn't mind so much. Only problem in the bathroom was the mold and the shower had poor drainage. BUT the shower was really big for such a small room. So that was really nice! The bed was kinda hard for my liking, but I dealt with it. The room came with freeze dried coffee crystals to have in the morning. I thought that was strange, but it turned out to be pretty good actually! The breakfast was average. It left something to be desired. It was nothing spectacular. Croissants, coffee, juice, toast (the toaster for the toast was HORRIBLE. You either got warm bread or charred black toast) and some cereal. There was really no need to upgrade breakfast. There was enough food to start your day. One bad thing about breakfast was the line! If you are going to stay here (which I strongly advise you NOT to) get to breakfast early! There was always a place to sit though.
Positive things: Internet worked well. Bus stop right across the street (kinda made up for being in the ghetto). Didn't take long to get to city center. Staff seemed a bit stuck up, but they were helpful.
