OK for what it is, and cheap for a Capital city. In some respects it may be better if the communal areas were only opened up to block bookings where the flat is being shared by the same party. In ours, somebody had left the sink full of dirty crockery, the smelly bin open, and unhygienic looking food in the fridge. The flat was also stunk out by somebody else's cooking. This annoyed me, I would rather they just gave us a room in a flat where the communal area was locked rather than used in an inconsiderate way by others. 10 euro PER SESSION to use the gym, not allowed to use it at all at peak times including most of the day time & evening! This is a massive rip off when you consider that it costs £19 a month for membership of a 24hr gym in the UK. It is also a con to advertise the accommodation as having facilities you are effectively barred from using by the combination of price and time restrictions. Our room was not available until 3, we sat in reception from 2, no effort was made to check if the room was ready, they were quite happy to make us sit there until the dot of the appointed time, which is really poor service. No explanation of breakfast facilities was given. We found the place and were charged 5 euro for a cooked breakfast, which was OK. WiFi in communal areas is free, passwords are at the main desk. Our room was on the ground floor by the main door into the block, it had no net curtain, so we had to keep the blind down 24/7 for privacy. Room was clean and serviced daily. Complementary shower gel and soap, plenty of towels but not enough pillows. Overall, a bit crappy, but cheapness and cleanliness saves it from a lower rating.
