Stayed for 6 nights while on vacation. Perhaps a poor choice but the availability of a free shuttle service to Roslynn metro station from 07:00 to 20:00 was a great drawcard. Just remember that the shuttle departs next to the filling station (below the church) opposite the station. The receptionist didn't seem to know where exactly the shuttle departs when I phoned upon arrival at the station (and also overhearing his directions when another guest phoned later during the week). Availability of computer from where I could read and answer my mail a great advantage. The room was a dissapointment (Room 212). Supposed to be smoke free but bad smoke smell inside. Then I realised that the smoke came through the bathroom window from outside. This prevented me from ventilating the room naturally (fresh air) as I couldn't open the front window due to traffic noise and security reasons. I couldn't get the air conditioner to push out cool air. The mattress was an inner-spring with a base underneath but very soft, however. The blanket was of a nylon type and very sticky - created a dirtyimpression. I reported it but it was not replaced. I slept under the sheet only. I managed to get a good night's sleep. Water reticulation good and no temperature problems experienced. Enough clean towels. Breakfast satisfactory for this kind of hotel - the first hotel where boiled eggs are available.

Room Tip: Make sure to inspect the room before accepting.

This is by far the worst hotel you will ever stay in. The hotel is from the 50s and is literally falling apart. They have made no effort at all to keep the place modern or kept up. The wallpaper is peeling, the carpet is musty, the sidewalks are heavily cracked, the paint is peeling. The breakfast consists of hard bread, coffee, and donuts. Nothing more. The cheapest rooms are tiny and can sleep only one person. They are about the size of a large closet. The TV did not turn on. The bathroom was tiny, and only one person could fit at a time. They had no AC and the heater was a very old type that barely worked. After 30min, I went to the front desk and demanded a refund. The manager (Dev) refused the refund because I had paid online. I called the online booking company and they would only give a refund if the hotel manager agreed. The runaround... After complaining and having a whole list of complaints (in only 30min), the manager decided to upgrade us to a nicer room. He was not happy about doing this and continuously stated that we were getting a $20 upgrade for free. I went and looked at the second room ,and it was indeed a lot bigger. It still had maintenance issues. When the shower is turned on, water would run into the room on the other side of the shower, obvious plumbing leaks. On the second day, the toilet stopped when I flushed it. It overflowed and would not stop. It finally stopped overflowing, but it had flooded the room, and all the carpet was soaked. I immediately called the front desk and told them to send someone immediately. The lady said there was no one available and she would send them at 8am. We left and came back that night. The toilet was fixed, but the room was still terribly wet. We went to the front desk and got another room. There is a shuttle service that runs every hour, but it simply drops people off outside a gas station in the city. The driver drives terribly and recklessly. I could go on and on about this hotel, but it would be a waste. The hotel owner obviously does not care, and spends as little money as possible. Maybe someone will come along later and sue them. I was lucky, because I arrived a few days early for a conference. After 3 days in this hotel, I moved to the conference hotel (a 5 star). What a huge difference!

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel.
