If you're looking for a cheap place to stay in a good location, then Hotel 17 is your best bet. It won't bowl you over with customer service or amenities, but it is comfortable and secure.

Loved the location and general ambience of Hotel 17. Staff very efficient, but maybe lacking a little warmth! Great place to return to.

I was very pleased with my state here and I will stay again. This is a beautiful older building. As such there are shared bathrooms but the staff kept everything very clean.

Stay 1 week for work, single private room + shared bathroom. Very nice room on 7th floor with nice view. Comfortable bed, AC, sink in the room which make it very convenient. Shared bathrooms were cleaned several times a day. The whole hotel is very clean. Wifi worked well in the room. I would have prefer a little fridge in the room than a TV screen, but otherwise everything was great. Nice and safe location.


Pros: The Hotel was nice and clean. Shared bathrooms were always clean and usually available. Most of the Staff was kind and helpful and gave us good tips and information. Security was very good and nice neighbourhood. Cons: The rooms are extremely small and if you don't smoke, be sure to ask for a non-smoking room. The beds are very noisy and the matress not straight. There is no common area and no kitchen, which would be nice to prepare some food and to interact with people.
