The hotel gives off an online impression of being modern and so in time. I ordered a "superior" room, which would have robes and slippers included. I thought the term "superior" used to mean something. But no. The room was plain. Small TV, ok bed, small desk. Very small mini-bar. The sink was in the room and the shower was the smallest room created in mans memory. The toilet had to share space with the shower, as a result - the whole bath got wet during one shower.
It felt simple. It did not feel superior.
As I told the receptionist, all he said it was urban modern. If it is urban modern to have cheap small rooms, you are my guest. I am not any more.
I will not recomend this hotel to anyone.
Besides, the street outside the hotel is an open work site.
I give it 2 stars due to good internet.
Should you stay or go away: Go away!
