Location - Andel Metro station is right outside the hotel, directly in front. This helped a lot in easily accessing the tourists spots in the city. I give it a 4 rating since it is 10 minutes away from the Old Town and its not scary to come home late.
The Room - we got a twin room with a private bathroom with hot water. It doesn't look like a first class hotel room but its good enough for someone with a budget. Anyway, the room was spacious and comes with a mini fridge, a flat screen tv, phone, electric water heater (for coffee), hair dryer, aircondioning! The view outside our window was the back of the hotel so its a quiet neighborhood. We saw that some rooms have verandas but ours has none. My only complaint is that each bed only has 1 thin pillow. If you're not a pillow person then that's alright. I just wished there were at least two per person and not too flat. Oh and the wifi is not too strong. My signal goes on and off for some time. But I can post and view FB for a short time. Not good if you expect to video call someone but enough to take a peak at your online social network.
The Reception - the area itself is welcoming with white sofa. The receptionist speaks english well, accomodating enough.
Breakfast - Breakfast is served from 7am-10am. I didn't expect much so I was surprised at the yummy breakfast served buffet style. They served scrambled eggs, hard-boiled eggs, cereal, bread, foot long sausages (yum), different cheeses and cold cuts. Of course there are coffee, juices, water and tea. For me, its great breakfast :)
Overall, Akcent hotel is a good find for those within a budget. By the way, our room was approximately 60euros per night which is alright since my friend & I are sharing the bill :) It's not within walking distance from the tourists spots, but it has what we needed so its a VERY GOOD for me!
