Reading these reviews, guests seem to love it or hate it. My experience, late May 2013, was blazing internet service, a HUGE room with a view of the river, efficient laundry service (Oh yes, a shirt is EUR 4.00), pretty good breakfast, helpful staff, a fine spa, and great barber.
I did find the coffee shop menu a bit limited, but what they served up was good. Yes, the rooms are a bit tired, but the place was clean, everything worked, there was lots of good channels on the telly.
My sole complaint is the isolation. It is a looooong walk to Old Town and there is nothing, but nothing, in the neighborhood around the hotel. They will, bless them, give you a taxi voucher to be dropped off in the town hall square, but you are on your own for the return trip. And of course, once you are there (across the river), you are there -- no nipping back to the room for a potty stop or to pick up that brolly, or to escape the inclement weather.
For me, it was good value for money but I missed the urban experience I would have had at its sister hotels at the edge of Old Town.
