A very clean hotel with friendly staff however a few problems:
Wouldn't take cash at checkout
TV control battery corroded and wouldn't work the TV
Internet is free but terrible, hard to get onto and maintain a connection which is then slow to the point of giving up unless you sit in lobby, hard connections are available but I'm the age of iPads the wifi should be better for a business hotel.
Lift woefully slow and at one point after waiting in lobby for nearly ten minutes for lift workmen pushed their way in ahead of me with building supplies and waited another ten minutes for lift again. I was on top floor so a quick run up stairs was not an option.
Breakfast woeful also with little choice. Although I ate one lunch there and that was actually very good.
Signs everywhere say no smoking but as generally in the Balkans everyone ignores and smokes with the ashtrays provided next to the no smoking signs. Even two police officers who took morning coffee ignored signs and puffed away. I now stink of smoke and am sure my lungs will suffer.
Good location however and room clean and well presented with a great bathroom and adequate in room refreshments
Staff again very good and pleasant.
