We spent 5 nights at Remco Hotel and overall its a terrible hotel we would not recommend it to anyone.
The area of the hotel is quiet and creeps you out a bit while walking to the tram (as there s nothing else around to walk to..) On our first night going out a beggar welcomed us in the front of the hotel. Also, it is quite far from center and the tram (reachable in 15' on foot) takes 30 min to get you there.
As for the room (we were on the fourth floor), as soon as we entered we noticed how cold the room was, the heating panel showed 24 C but didnt react to any changes, the heating was clearly broken. Then we noticed a small heater in one corner of the room, which also didnt work. So we went back down immediately and complained about the temperature. The receptionist told us that her colleague set "now" the room temperature to 24 C again and it will be warm in latest 30 Min. Going back up again, we noticed that the heating still didnt work, only the small heater in the corner suddenly worked. (which didnt seem to be powerful to heat this room at all and produced a burned awful smell in the room). Clealry the receptionist lied to us, she could have just told us that there is a problem with the heating.
Anyway, the mattresses were in a bad condition, quite uncomfortable and caused us backpain.
The free WIFI didnt even reach our room (tried with 2 different cell phones and one tablet.
Everytime we called from our room to the restaurant or the receptionist, noone bothered to pick up. The cappuccino we ordered one time from the restaurant was disgusting and so were the ordered meat balls.
On our last day there was a note in the elevator that the water will be shut down in the entire hotel TODAY at 11am for SOME hours.
The garbage from our room wasnt removed at all.
We are sorry to not be able to say one good thing about this hotel, but after this experience we advise: dont go there
