For us this was a close to the train station and economical overnight stay and it was fine for that- but we weren't aware if the no lift and 3 flights if stairs , thankfully a staff member came to our rescue eventually on arrival - it's it here redeeming factor is how close it is to the old part if the city as we were able to wander for an hour or so and enjoy.


Claims to be a 2 star hotel, however, I had better rooms and beds in cheap hostels. Very small and noisy room, with a bathroom built in afterwards, suspicious door that was difficult to lock and broken aircondition. Breakfast was ok, some toast with jam, ham, cheese and Nutella next to some Donuts, hot drinks were charged extra though. Moreover, Saturday morning there were construction works starting from 9 AM including drilling. Not recommended.
