Well, let me just start off saying that this hotel is very homey. It is run by a family I believe, and it is very family orientated. When you walk into the main entrance, to the left is the main desk, to the right is a resturant, and you have to go through a hall to walk into the lobby or the "Common room" as they call it. They have many couches in there, a tv, and 30 cents per minute internet service.
Now this part is a bit strange, but when I got to the hotel with my small school group, they went over a ton of charges. For example, to unplug the toliet, it was 200 dollars. If you were to overload the elevator, it would be 500 dollars. If you were to steal a towel, it would be 10 dollars, etc. Kinda odd, but I guess they've been getting the bad end of the stick a couple times.
By the way, there is a ajoining souvineer shop that has a entrance from the hotel, where you can buy sweaters, shirts, key chains, magnets, and other things.
Once you go up the elevator (or stairs), the halls look all right. I stayed on the first floor, room 104. They give you one key, so make sure you keep track of it.
My particular room had one queen/king size bed, and a sofa bed. The regular bed was a bit rough, but the sofa bed was alright. There was a 27" TV with a DVD player, so make sure to bring your dvds. There were two windows, looking over an alley, very quiet. The stairs howerver got a bit noisey at times. The bathrooms are nice, 3 towels, make sure not to take one. Haha. There was a chair in there as well as a table and lamp. The place also had a coffe maker and a mini fridge.
There are many restaurants right accross and next to the restaurant. A couple of stores down from the hotel is mcdonalds, and there is a crepe place as well as a couple backeries.
Overall, this hotel was a good choice.
