I booked this hotel via travel agency and they declared that this is a 4 star hotel and good. I searched via Tripadvisor and read positive and negative views and decided to stay. That was a big mistake. I arrived the hotel late afternoon and went to my room. I realized that if you are a bit bigger than the average human size, it will not be possible to sit on the toilet since the width of the corridor was equal to the width of the closet, there was no minibar than you can have water, no place to open and locate you suitcase, the room is also tiny and dirty. I went to outside to have a dinner and the real tragedy started. When I came back, the room was full of smell of burnt vegetable oil. No possibility to open a window and I was so tired, tried to sleep...... It was not possible. The other morning I informed the front desk on the phone before going out the person said "OK, we will give you a good room!". Meanwhile the cleaners told me that this room is famous with its smell. We I came back from my meeting at noon time to change my room, the front desk man told me that "who promised you about changing the room?" That was a surprise. He tried to find explanations that the smell is temporary. I insisted for change, he said OK will will give you a good, nice room, I think this is their slogan. I left my suitcase to the other room and rushed to my meeting. As a result no difference between the rooms in terms of low quality except the smell.
In this hotel, for my opinion, there is no clue about refurbishment, no cleanliness (the pill from previous client was staying at the same place when I left the room after 4 days), nothing related to 4 stars. No minibar, smell of damp in the bathroom, smell of vegetable oil in the room. This is a city center hotel but there are many around the city center.
