In a quiet neighborhood off the main street just a few short blocks from a major metro stop (being close to a metro stop is invaluable in any city, imho).
The staff was very friendly, and most spoke English well enough.
The breakfast room was nice, and the food was good.
Free wifi and personal safe.
The room was clean, and the cleaning staff was attentive and thorough.
The furniture and decor is extremely outdated. Not sure what decade, but probably the 60's. The wood design just feels old (and not in that "good quaint" old way... just old). I even had an old CRT TV that took at least 2 min to warm up and turn on... seriously.
On top of that, the room was the tiniest I've ever been in. To be fair, I had the "Junior" suite (because I was traveling solo and don't need much space), but this was a bit ridiculous. It's a single bed and two steps out of it in either direction, I hit a wall.
The bathroom was crowded as well, especially the shower, which was more like a coffin. I'm 6'1" and thin, and I kept hitting the walls with my elbows. I had to get creative with the shower head just make it work. Each shower was an adventure to say the least. I don't know how a larger person could ever make it work. Maybe the regular rooms have regular showers. I don't know, but my coffin was ridiculous.
It's not a bad hotel, by any means. But be sure you DON'T get a "Junior" suite. I won't stay there again, but the fact that it's quiet, clean, and a few blocks from a metro stop may be acceptable for some people.
