So whilst the attraction to this hotel is the price, this is merely to be used as somewhere to rest your head. The hotel offers no facilities whatsoever accept bed and breakfast, but even those are questionable. The bedroom is small, unclean and about as welcoming as a prison cell. The walls are very thin and offers no privacy. The beds are old, with broken springs. The breakfast was stale and inedible... but Subway is across the road.
The hotel is situated further away than stated from the centre of town, it is a 45 minute seafront stroll should you have the weather to do it, failing that its around 2000kr in a taxi each way.
All in all, I would pay a little extra per night to stay somewhere with clean bedding, closer to town and more comfortable after a cold day out in a very cool city!
