This is a terrible hotel, and I hated every moment in it. The biggest problem was the lack of climate control ... on two sunny days the room was ridiculously hot and the a/c control seemed merely for show. Nothing I did could actually make even the slightest gust and then overnight the heating came on! Our sheets were drenched in sweat.
Staff were wilfully useless ... when I complained about the heat there suggestions ranged from "try turning it off and it should work in a couple hours" to "you should go outside as it's a nice day".
In the end I opened a window but then you realise how noisy the place can get, and we had a "courtyard" (ie abandoned dilapidated building and roof of neighbour) view. Plus then if we closed the curtain it blocked the small breeze we could get, and meant I had to wake up at 5am to close (and heat up) to block the morning light
The room was small, the lifts slow, and the location pretty remote from any actual sights. It was close to a U-Bahn but that and a semi-decent wifi connection were it's only redeeming features.
I travel far more than most with both work and pleasure and this was by far one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in.
