We stayed here at the beginning of March for three nights in a city break like experience organized by ourselves. We were indeed very happy with the services and especially with the receptionists which were extremely kind and accommodating. We stayed first night in a rather basic room facing main street which was exposed to the loud music coming from the night clubs just adjacent to the hotel. Luckily we came really late that night and the noise stopped after 01.30 a.m. so we could sleep OK. To what we have paid by booking via booking.com the value for money was what we would expect. The nice surprise came the second day when the receptionist offered us an upgraded room with no extra payment to help us avoid the noise expected in a Saturday night. The room was on the back of the street this time and much quieter, although the beat of the music could be felt at some point vibrating everywhere ... The room was excellent this time, very spacious, with a large flat screen TV set and having a dinner table for four and a functional kitchen. The bathroom had a bath tub as well. The whole furniture was new and of a different quality comparing with the previous double room we stayed in. We were very happy with this arrangement and duly grateful to the lady in the reception. As a bonus the Wi-Fi was available in that particular room even better than in public spaces. Hotel has a very nice and cozy lounge where you can relax and watch TV or use the Wi-Fi while having complementary tea or coffee and a very conveniently located bar just outside the lounge which also communicates with the reception lobby. Cleanliness was a strong point for sure at this hotel with towels and beddings changed every day and rooms being attended carefully by a very nice and friendly staff. The other details are just as described in the other reviews. Location is by all means acceptable as you can have the underground taking you to the center and from there wherever you need via a single line, "Central", which is almost cutting in half the whole city. The neighborhood is not particularly pretty but is quite offering in restaurants, beauty parlors and night clubs, plus a park nearby. The breakfast is included and is the usual expected, however it is true that sausages are just awful. One other weakness there is the challenge to get a decent toast as the toaster is prone to burn the bread, while totally uninspired the fire sensor is just above it, so we experienced a number of unnecessary fire alarms during breakfast :)
All in all we were very satisfied with the hotel for what we have paid and the bonus received was definitely the quality of a very kind and friendly staff (thinking again about the upgrade we were awarded) !
I would warmly recommend for the travelers looking for a decent, safe hotel available at a very good value for money.
