On arrival, we received an "upgrade", that turned out to be just a swap from "mountain view" to "harbour view". The other room couldn't possibly be any smaller. The view could have been god, but the windows was so dirty, you could hardly see anything through them.
The room was so small, that there wasn't enough floor to open two suitcases, we had to put the suitcases on the bed to be able to open it.
The bathroom was accordingly small, so small in fact, that the sink was outside, and in the bedroom itself.
The room had a carpet, and everything seemed quite dark and gloomy.
As mentioned by others, the beds was very firm, I had a hard time sleeping at all. Should have asked for extra padding...
The location is ok, but you have to expect a 15-20 min walk to get to Central. But the taxies are quite cheap, as long as the driver understands you, it's ok.
The breakfast wasn't a winner either, just very basic, and the few things they had, was just 'ok', not 'good'.
One last, annoying, thing: the elevators are extremely slow, and if you arrive at the hotel at the same time as a bus of others, you even have to stand in a huge line.
If all you need is a no-frill place to sleep, and can stand the firm beds, and don't want breakfast, this hotel might be the thing for you. If you want something more out of your stay, go somewhere else.
