Felt hotel wasn’t value for money in what we paid but that said, we did book through a travel agent and it was booked a week prior to going so probably not the most cost effective way.
That said, the hotel is in a good location. Yes, the surrounding area isn’t the most attractive but I never felt unsafe. It’s located 2 stops away from the metro stop where all 3 lines interchange so very convenient for getting around the city. Also a tram and a few buses stop virtually outside. We purchased a 7day travel ticket (we were there for 4 days). We got the ticket from post office at airport and used it to get to the hotel and then around town – a lot cheaper than taxis or airport shuttle bus.
I’ve read a few posts on here about unfriendly staff. The check in lady was friendly and smiled a lot. The housekeeping staff we saw were friendly, as were the breakfast staff. In fact, I asked for a bottle of coffee one morning (not keen on coffee machines) and the next morning, the lady offered me the bottle again without me having to ask. Here’s a tip, greet staff (and locals) in their language: Jo reggelt (yo reggae) good morning, Koszonom (kersunom) thank you etc. and you’re guaranteed a smile.
Room was fine – it was my husband’s birthday so they said they’d ‘upgraded’ us to a room with a window looking outside. Clean and tidy. Our coffee & tea & showercap weren’t replenished and the tv didn’t work but we didn’t report it so didn’t give them the chance to rectify it. Free wifi in rooms - though you may have to play around with which connection you use to get the one with the best strength.
Breakfast was ok. The scrambled eggs were a bit wet for my liking but bacon and little sausage things were nice. They even had broccoli and other veg! Fruit consisted of apples and kiwi, would have been nice to have a banana but not a big deal. They also had bread, pastries, cereal & yoghourt. The juice, if you could call it that, was a sugary liquid with a hint of whatever juice it was meant to resemble.
There’s a shop opposite the hotel which sells a 2 liter bottle of water for the equivalent of 22 pence, snacks etc. so very handy. Also a McDonalds on the corner for a late night snack or coffee, Burger King across the road and a 2 storey shopping center just opposite. We had to pay a tax when checking out – less than £3. All in all, if I could get this hotel for less than I paid this time round, I would have no problem staying here again or recommending it to friends and family.
