I stayed here for a conference for my research grant. In my first room, the window didn't shut, the phone was missing, the lock was broken, and the Internet didn't work, so they gave me a new room. Sadly, the elevator was broken and my key card (as well as those of many of my colleagues) all stopped working, which meant we were given giant physical keys. The cleaning crew does not actually clean the room (there was hair in the shower and make-up on the sink where I had left them in the morning), though they do seem to straighten it up and deliver fresh (scratchy) towels. The pillows, mattress, and blankets are as terrible as you'd expect. They give you two of the tiniest bottles of hair/body soap imaginable, which aren't nearly enough for my to wash even just my (longish) hair. If you're tall, they won't be enough for you to soap up. I'm sure I've missed a bunch of other things that are bad about the room and the service. Also, this should be clear from a map, but it's quite far from anything--about a half hour by tram to the city center.
Positives: Clean, tolerable (free) breakfast, free (unreliable and slow) wifi.
