The hotel is about 10 minutes’ walk from the nearest metro station and not very easy to find but that is not the main problem. More importantly, the way to the metro station is through a pedestrian walkway and the area does not look very safe. Consider taking a taxi if you plan to return to your room late in the evening.
The rooms are basic but very clean. There is no air-conditioner, which might be a problem in the summer. In the winter, you might have a reverse problem as the heating system is not very efficient and the rooms tend to get cold. As far as I understand, the standard rooms are all smoking rooms, so choose an upgraded room if you are a non-smoker (the non-smoking rooms are all on floors 3, 4, and 5).
The hotel offers free wi-fi but it is incredibly slow. They should change their Internet provider or sign up for a higher speed contract.
Breakfast is surprisingly good, with a lot of variety.
The front desk staff are quite efficient – both check-in and check-out took a mere 5 minutes. All in all, an OK hotel for a budget traveler.
