it's difficult to have a rest.
The building is beautifully renovated, the walls, the stairs, everything is snow white, shining and clean. But the walls are from paper, there is a gap between the door and the floor, the floor on the first floor's hallway is covered with wood but there's no sound insulation underneath. The result is that you can hardly have a rest. I had to sleep with earplugs and sleeping eye mask because the lights were on in the corridor and if somebody crossed the floor to the bathrooms it sounded like a herd of elephants running around.
I had a basic room with shared bathroom. The room small but clean and the equipment was really basic: a cupboard, two little side tables, bed and a television. Actually I would have preferred having a fridge than a tv, but anyway it was not that important for me.
The shared bathrooms were fine. They were clean and many enough. I never had to wait for a shower or for toilette.
The best thing in the hotel was it's location: very central and easy to get anywhere in the town.
