“Do not leave your towels on the ground”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

With a little more effort it would really be nice. The position is good, just a 15 minutes walk from the city centre. The room was big. We even had a fridge so we could buy food or water and keep them cold.
The problem comes with the carpet and the cleaning services: the NEVER cleaned our room in 7 days. The shower leaked water so the first day we had to put the towels on the ground but on the second day we discovered that they would have come and clean after 3 days (they never came in the whole week, actually) but they gave us some extra towels without any problem. However the waste bin was full, the bathroom floor dirty and, moreover, the carpet on the ground stinked... we had the opportunity to open the windows for about an hour in the morning, while having breakfast or the shower but the humidity is high and passes through the window so in the evening, when entering the room we were hit by a horrible stench... The carpet is never a good idea, when it's not clean then it's the worst.
However, the breakfast was good, the bed was comfortable. They should clean the room more often. I do not claim that the sheets are changed daily but at least the bathroom should be cleaned, the trash emptied and the windows opened!

The hotel is nothing to write home about. Still the rooms were clean and warm. There were single glazing windows and condensate dropped on the floor round-the-clock, so we had to tuck up the towels. Breakfasts I would call frugal. Nevertheless it was ok, good enough to stay overnight.
