On stepping into my room on the 4th floor, I was simply not impressed at all. The room was small and cramped, however, it was very clean. It had a tiny bathroom you could hardly move in and it was very dark. The decor was old and faded, probably from the 1980's. If it had been rated a 3 star hotel, I would have been more than happy to have stayed in the room. After several complaints, I was upgraded to a more superior room, which I could not fault. The breakfast was very good, with lots of variety and the staff on the whole were very nice.
Excellent location, just minutes from the 'underground', zoo, shopping areas, restaurants, coffee shops (Starbucks was 2 mins away) and bars. No tea and coffee facilities in the room, but I guess this may be standard in European hotels. Also 2 mins away from the 'hop on, hop off' bus.
Overall I would recommend a stay at this hotel. Stayed 5 nights.
