As a previous reviewer noted, I also can't figure out how this "hotel" (or whatever it claims to be) can get a decent rating. It's noisy, overpriced, and offers minimal anything.
I stayed in room #17, which was average sized, with two single beds, desk and chair, sitting chair and nightstands (no refrigerator or safe) and a TV with BBC, Discovery and 3 others in English. The bathroom was small, with shower only. It's located a 10 minute walk from the central station (which is where you can be dropped off with the airport bus), but the last 3 blocks are uphill and it's not an easy walk with luggage. It's also well hidden, as when you get to the top of the hill you have to walk up some stairs along a building that looks like a private walk (or else walk around an extra couple of blocks on the paved streets).
It has a quiet location next to a park, but the interior noise is ridiculous. I was on the second floor, and could hear people walking by and dishes being cleaned in the nearby kitchen area, and there were other rooms nearby that must hear the same noise. The breakfast area consists of 6 tables (I had to share a table for 4), but you won't spend much time there--breakfast is cereal, bread and meat/cheese, tomato and cucumber, and a few pieces of fruit.
I can think of absolutely nothing to recommend this place, and for the price it's a terrible value.
