I arrived at night and was checked in by a lady who did not speak English or understand the needs of travelers just arriving to a new city. She barely had a map for me, could not supply me with wifi password, and failed to let me know that if I wanted to eat something, everything in Old Town closes early. Therefore, I had no dinner that night bc no place was open and I couldn't communicate about anything. In the morning, there was no hot water in the shower...no matter how long I let it run,,,
Also, she had no change for me when I went to pay.,.she woke up the owner, who I expressed my experience to...and all she said was "sorry"...that's it...I had planned on staying another few nights layer in my trip, but made other arrangements.
Not a place to rely on for information or service...although the location is good in the Old Town,,.
Wish it was better.
