Certificate of Excellence

We spent one night, the people at the hotel is very friendly. The room was small but nice, the bathroom deserves a 10, clean and 4 blocks away of subway. The breakfast has a charge, and is not cheap. Anyway is a good option in town.

We spent two nights at this hotel, travelling as a party of four.
Location was great, really close to the subway and from there just a few stations to the historic center. On the downside, they didn't have any space available in their own parking lot, so I had to park my car in another private parking, about 4 blocks away from the hotel.
Staff was pleasant and eager to solve all our requests though. The room was nice, clean & comfortable. Breakfast was nice, had a pretty good selection.
Overall very good price-quality ratio, which was exactly what we were looking for.

Room Tip: If travelling by car, make sure you call them beforehand and reserve a parking space for yourself!

Our party consisted of 3 generations of one family, myself a 63 year, 42 year old son and 2 grandchildren, aged 21 & 15 but the hotel suited us all and we greatly enjoyed our 3 night stay especially given the price we paid. The room, though on the small side with limited wardrobe space, consisted of 2 bunk beds and a double that could be separated. The beds were on the narrow side but we all enjoyed three good nights sleep so that was a good testament. What impressed me most about the hotel was the friendly and efficient reception staff who provided excellent tourist information when requested but also that the hotel bar was not a rip off, providing drinks at affordable prices. We did not partake of the buffet breakfast (5 euros 50) but it looked reasonable with plenty of choice. The location, in a business district, is not ideal, and is some walk to the nearest public transport and tube station for a 63 year old but I'm sure the majority of the hotel's clientele find it no problem at all. I was also impressed and pleased that the noise was kept to a minimum guranteeing a good night's sleep. All in all a good budget hotel that provided excellent value for money with a good nights sleep and you can't ask for much more than that in this day and age.

Room Tip: A top floor room seemed to be quieter

We visited the hotel in early May 2013.
We booked a standard double room but instead were given a room with four beds (not a bad thing necessarily :))
The staff is really friendly and try to be as much of help as possible.
Rooms are spacious and really clean. The room was cleaned on a daily basis.

The location of the hotel is really close to U2 and U4 metro stations (5-10 minutes on foot). It is situated in a really quiet neighborhood, 200m from a local supermarket. The hotel has a pretty nice coffee shop at the lobby, a fully equipped kitchen and a nice gaming area.

Room Tip: All floors have elevator access, the street is not noisy at all. So I don't think there is a wro...

We spent four nights here and were very happy with our choise. We had a private room with a bathroom. Room was cozy and spacious with a comfy double bed. Bathroom had a walk-in shower. You can get a free wifi-passwords from the reception. Staff was laid-back, helpful and kind. Location was a bit remote, but the nearest metro station was only 150 meters away.
All in all, a very nice and recommendable hotel.

Lets start by saying this is not my normal style of hotel. I instantly felt a little aged here in the sea of youth but it was intoxicating and refreshing. The staff were very enthusiastic and helpful at this budget hotel which offered both shared and private rooms.. The entrance foyer is the hub and served an amazing breakfast for 5+Euro - a great and very sustantial start to the day and recommended.
Location is good not great, but handy enough if you a are not scared of a 15 min walk along the engaging canal area. Perfect for an early morning run too.
Rooms are spotless and very simple but serviceable and friendly. Nice clean modern bathroom with comfy firm matresses and sparkling white linen.
I would recommend this if you are looking too save some money - its only a bed afterall, and if you want to feel the energy and optimism of your youth return....... or to make friends and have some fun if you are younger or young-at-heart.

Room Tip: The top floor are great with big windows.

The rooms are not sardine-can sized, but do not expect more room than necessary to walk around your bed (I stayed in a twin-room). Also the bathroom is about the same. However, since we did not consider to stay indoors more than to sleep for the night, this did not bother us.

The 6 Euro breakfast does not provide anything extra, but all the basics are available. No eggs or other hot food though.

The staff is very helpful and polite. Had no issues with them. The venue is clean and tidy. I liked their young design. The bathroom in the room is proper, good.

Many reviews note the vast number of teenagers, but during our stay this did not bother us at all. During our stay time had visitors from all age groups, and no markable noise on the corridors or the common areas.

I recommend this location for one-three nights, but not for longer stays, for you might prefer a wider selection for breakfast, and a slightly more spacious room (with e.g. a closet with doors).

No pool, no gym.

Closest sub-way about 8 min walk.

Room Tip: Ask for a twin room, top floors.
