“Tired and worn, but in a great location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

This is your typical older hotel in a downtown area, with a tiny check-in desk on the ground floor and the main hotel on the upper floors. Check in was routine and like a conveyor belt – no smile, no welcome, no chat; just fill in the book and keep moving. The room itself was small but adequate, linens and towels etc. were all clean. The carpeted floors were clean but heavily stained with who knows what. Bathroom was clean but cramped and you need to be a gymnast to sit on the loo and not let your shoulders bang off the wash hand basin.

The double rooms are small and the elevator makes a lot of noise so make sure you get a room as far as possible away from it. The location is ideal but the hotel itself is kind of old with little facilities.

You'd almost walk by this place (and we did! Twice!!) as its entrance is only a doorway but the staff are helpful (though have little/no english) and it's very central and reasonably priced. Breakfast is served in a cafe in a mall two doors down from the hotel but this is a 2 minute walk and no big problem. Rooms are a little old-world and there are no double beds but they are clean and the bathrooms are more modern (and also clean). There is also free wi-fi for guest. It's a no-frills place that remains an unspectacular but very adequate place to stay and offers a lot of privacy and convenience at the more budget end of the market compared to, say, hostelling and more upmarket hotels. Depending on pricing comparisons when visiting, I would stay here again if the price was right.
