I chose this hotel because it was central and naively I thought I could reach everything more easily. This is not the case in Houston where you need a car.
If you have any problem for walking, you must consider that there is no lift in the hotel. A help is however provided to bring the suitcase in your room at the arrival and departure.
I booked a normal room which was of normal size but the bathroom was tiny and there was not space around the sink where to put the usual toiletry. There was a cabinet under the sink which was not really clean.
When I decided to lock manually the door I discovered that the locker was not working. This means that anybody with a master electronic card can enter in the room. I told the reception and they sent me immediatly somebody to fix it. After few fruitless attempts they granted without problems to transfer me in another room which was actually bigger.
The bathroom: it was definitly bigger and there was space around the sink for toiletry. But it was so dirty ! The floor was covered by hairs (human, animal ?), the worn carpet also. I tried not to look too close at the worn towels and at the eventual stains.
The bed was not bad. The curtains of the bedroom are so thin that the light enter the room when you are sleeping.
The kitchen was fine too and equipped. The sponge to clean the dishes was provided but dirty. The table was laid but there was dust on it and on the plates.
While having breakfat in my room and after having cleaned bowls and cutlery, I saw something on the floor. It was actually a cockroach that hide under the TV unit. I understood then what I saw moving quickly and hidding under my bed earlier.
The staff was helpful.
In conclusion I would not recommend this hotel if you want to treat yourself ! And frankly speaking I cannot even say it was cheap.
