The room was a good size and the bathroom was nice. The mattress was pretty comfortable however the sheets and blankets were a bit thin and scratchy nylon-y fabrics.
It is a budget hotel though - generally I was pretty impressed until we had breakfast!
Breakfast gets laid out at 3 in the morning, before the staff leave - there are no staff at the hotel in the morning, you check out by posting your keys through a whole.
The breakfast is really poor, instant coffee, only whole milk - no choice, cheap and really sweet yogurts, sliced bread and the cheese they put out is that nasty rubber burger cheese! It was horrible!
Because there are no staff in the hotel in the mornings people just leave their mess all over the breakfast room and no one is there to clear it up so plates are piled up on tables and everything is left out in the open. It is really unacceptable.
I've never known a hotel where there aren't any staff in the morning! Don't know hat you would do if there was a problem.
If you do stay - go out for breakfast!
