The location is great. 100 meters from Union street, near shopping centers and the harbour.
The room in which I stayed was extremely small. As you open the door, you can see a 2,5-3 meters long room with a TV o the left and before it a tiny 1 person bed, a small tall closet on the right and a masive desk right next. Is you're staying for more than 1-2 days you won't have any room to place you troller. I stayed there for 2 weeks and in the not even 1 meter between the bed and the desk I had to leave my troller, cause it wouldn't fit in the closet.
On the right of the door you can find the bathroom in which you barely have enough room to brush your teeth, no way of moving in there.
Also, the windows did not open: there was no handle to do it.
The cleaning was ok. Still, didn't appreciate the call that I received from the cleaning lady while having a "do not disturb" on the door handle. She called to ask if she could clean the room today. That I found extremely rude.
There is no pool or gym and the wifi is innexistent. You have to pay separately for it and the only option is BT Open Zone who is just rubish.
Long story short I would say it is way to expensive for the type of services offered. I won't be staying there any time soon.
