We arrived for 3 nights and chose an upgrade to a suite which was really very good. The kitchen however lacked no crockery or cutlery. After bringing this to the attention of the management was resolved. I am not sure is this is an issue for non Jewish guests.
The room was spacious and very clean and comfortable with comfortable beds. The management were helpful and the cleaning staff very helpful, especially a Russian girl who gave us lots of advice.
The breakfast was good with bagels and cream cheese, fresh fruit, coffee, cereals toasts, fresh fruit juice. I think that previous reviews had been unfair as the breakfast is fine.
The area around the hotel was different. It is in the hasidic Jewish area and feels like you have stepped back a few generations. No bars or restaurants and the rubbish on the side walks is shocking. It is however a very safe area and although appearing unfriendly it is safe.
The metro is only 10 min walk away and really well placed for all connections. The staff at the hotel are very accommodating. I would recommend this hotel the standard of rooms are comfortable. The area although safe is not the cleanest.
