We are here now, at the Hellinis, and having a computer with internet right in the room is definitely nice. connection is fast, hardware is modern.
Staff is really friendly and helpful in every way; rooms are small and not recently renovated but fine for the price of 60 for a double. air conditioning & room refrig work great. bed is fine but able to feel the springs.
Bathrooms: horrible. can't take bath because drain overflfows into the bathroom; can't take shower because there's no curtain and only a hand-held shower head with no place to hang it or prop it. so you have to do sponge bath. or stand in tub and use hand-held shower and get the entire bathroom soaked, including towels and your stuff and tissue etc. Not a good arrangement.
despite this, we still enjoy staying here. restaurant is good; breakfast is fine; lobby and bar and outdoor lounge is very nice. it is convenient because bus outside the door takes you to downtown in ten minutes, or tram is 10 min away, as is the metro. its on a noisy street, but the general neighborhood is upscale and has very nice huge plaza nearby with dozens of restaurants and stores etc. all of them modern suburban style.
If they only did something about the terrible showering situation, they'd have an excellent place here and rate a four star.
Btw, I checked and all the bathrooms are like this.
