          • Single
            8.8

            I actually was early for my check-in by a few hours but the staff were easy going and let me check-in much earlier, this made a huge difference as I had not slept the night before

          • Single
            9.2

            The single-room was big and comfortable. There were two beds in it. Everything was clean and worked fine. The staff was friendly and willing to help with everything. I would stay at this hotel again.

            the breakfast was, especially for vegetarians, not well. Toast, cornflakes, butter, jelly (marmelade), some vegetables, oranges, sausages, coffee and tee. But no cheese. The best thing about it was the coffee, the rest's quality wasn't well.

          • Single
            9.6

            clean,internet,friendly staff,value for money

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            I like the staff and services, there is room service with kind staff,also minibar, good location of the hotel close to downtown and to the metro station.

            I did not like the cleanliness of the room.The walls were derty with cutting paper on some places.The floor also was covered with very old carpet which was with the spots of old not cleaned pieces.Old covers on the beds.There were two single beds instead 1 double as I booked.

          • Single
            9.2

            The facilities in the room like air-conditioning and English channels on T.V. were excellent.The staff is very helpful.

          • Single
            8.8

            Great staff - everyone speaks English, very friendly, fast service. Very nice breakfast (included) in the cafe downstares, lots of snacks and pastries there. There is also free and fast wi-fi in the room. Convenient location in the city, so yo ucan have anytime walking and checking out the city.

            View from the room was somehow spoiled by (road?) construction outside, but I guess this should end soon

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            Hotel is very close to Central bus station and the center of the city. People at the reception was quite helpfull.

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            Easy to get to from the airport and very easy to walk from into the city centre. Huge rooms. Was also quiet.

            A pet had stayed in the room previously and the hairs were all over the carpet and had not been properly vacuumed. But everything else was clean and tidy.

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            the room were really spacious. Both the double room and the apartment we booked had very good lighting, a lot of space, bathrooms were clean and spacious.

            The breakfast was really disappointing. it was poor and the staff serving the breakfast (served at restaurant Papaya next to the hotel) was not able to speak English therefore they could not offer us any information about whether what we were served was chicken/pork etc.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Very close to the city center, about ten minutes walk and less!

            The breakfast was in a local cafe under the hotel and there was n't buffet.If you wanted something more from the meal that you had already choose you had to pay.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            the fact that this hotel no longer has dining/bar facilities.

          • Single
            6.2

            A little run down and women soliciting near the front door after dark. Breakfast poor. Howeevr, for the price and position it is not bad and I would recommend it for people on a budget. Staff very helpful.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            No problems at all. We liked the friendly staff, hotel and Papaya.

          • Couple
            8.8

            Hotel has nice confortable rooms. You could even think it is 4 stars

            Paid Parking place some 10 min walk away, not very nice.
