I stayed at this hotel for 3 days in June 2012. All in all this hotel provides the service for the money, except there were a number of annoyances which made my staying quite disappointing.
The hotel is located right above the Chinese restaurant, and the cooking smell was all over the place, apparently the kitchen extractor was broken. At the time Euro 2012 was taking place, and the Chinese staff were cheering loudly in the lobby not very far from my room. Bathroom fixtures, cups and a kettle in my room were all quite old and scuffed.
The most disappointing bit though is that my deposit sum haven't been returned to me despite a 25-emails-long thread of questions answering and receipts scanning due to a receptionist mistake apparently. :(
Nobody there speaks reasonably good English, by the way.
