Once we arrived at the hotel, we were horrified of what we might come across, as the street is deserted and all the houses are in a very bad condition. You have to ring the doorbell (!) and enter a construction site, of which the hotel is only part of. The GOOD NEWS are that the hotel is refurbished, so the room is CLEAN (although small), the bathroom is CLEAN and the staff very helpful (we needed to use the internet, and the receptionist offered us the PC in his office!).
View from the room: the wall of the opposite building, but the room isn't dark at all.
Right in the centre of the historic town, 10min walk from the Opera House, 1min walk from the near bars. The region is safe at night (although we had our doubts).
Overall, we were very satisfied with the facilities when compared to its price!
