Stayed at Hotel Xenia for my birthday. Coming in to the room the overall image was good however my first impression was that the room was extremely small for what you pay for. The desk was of a standard size but was very cramped and close to the bed. The bed was a good size very spacious for two persons and the bed covers were good however the brown blanket out over the top looked a little bit cheap - reminded me of an inn in that aspect. There was a sofa in the corner but really no point of even having one as you can't even watch TV from that angle plus it was tiny you couldn't get comfortable on it. The touch screen pad on the bedside table is a good idea however it didn't work properly, was faulty so didn't bother to use it. The bathroom was ridiculously cramped. You literally walk into the toilet seat, twist your body at an awkward angle to get through the door and close the door in able to do anything. The sink was right behind the door with the shower in the back. This was really upsetting to see that the bathroom was of such small size. However the products included were lovely. At some point during the night I was freezing, the room was stone cold even under the covers, I had to call reception to send someone up and see what was going on which was really a shame because I couldn't get to sleep for ages due to this. Overall the room was ok for a night but for a long period of stay I wouldn't recommend due to lack of facilities. I would advise a mini fridge to be added in so at least you have somewhere to store cool drinks. However the hotel is clean, couldn't find any faults in that department with the room, fresh towels, fresh bed everything was spot on in terms of cleanliness. Only downside is the size & it being so cramped.
