I have stayed at places with a few poor ratings by Tripadvisor contributors and thought that the were not too bad and maybe the expectations of the contributors were too high. Not with this one. First the good points - Partially location - it is 'down town' and so close to All the events and the Metro, but a bit too close with bars and loud music right outside the window!
The man on reception was helpful, directing me to safe and reasonable parking NOT the car park adjacent too the hotel.
So the rest - asked for a non smoking room but the room stank of smoke and there was a sign on the window to say it was alarmed and do not open. There were two queen sized beds that just fitted in at different angles, no wardrobe just hangers on the wall. There was a shower room, complete with silverfish and a separate toilet with the hand basin in the bedroom. It reminded me of a 1980s bedsit.
The room was not made up when we got there but when we got back the beds had been made with clean sheets and pillow cases but the same stained (blood?) blanket and cover. The sticky carpet had not been vacuumed and the toilet roll had run out but not been replaced. The hair dryer didn't work and the replacement burnt out!!
The wood panelling that a previous reviewer praised appeared to just be there to cover the damp as the varnish was peeling and it was discoloured around the edges.
Because it was so late we had to stay that night and found breakfast - microwaved croissants, polystyrene cups to be taken to the room or ate outside in the traffic fumes. When I said we were not staying the second night the (different) receptionist 'couldn't' understand english and so could not discuss refunds!!
