GOOD: Nice quarter, close to metro, a lot of shops, restaurants and bars in 5 min by walk. The receptionist was really nice, kind and friendly, i guess it was only because of him i stayed the all 4 nights. Such a poor guy to sell such rooms! Kitchen was nice also, we could cook etc.
BAD: the room was really horrible: i guess it was room #1 which was under the ground floor, with a bed 1.5m of hight, with self made furniture of wood chipboard. The window was near the stairs to the backyard, so everyone could see what's in. The curtain was broken. Oh, there is also a shower cabin in the room, that's why it was very humid. All this was in a room 9 square meters. For the last two days we've moved to a room upstairs. I thought that we had the worst room in the hotel but after i regret about the first one. The mattress was made of nylon, the sheet was crumple and in the morning i found myself on the bare mattress. Last night i could sleep at all. During the night the was a lot of noise from the street. The shower on the floor was half broken. The water overrun the shower cabin. Brief, AWFUL!
