The good things first. The room was clean, had hot water, safe location. Very well situated - close to the metro, five minutes walking instance from anywhere we had to be. Great Irish bar downstairs with food and a good beer selection. Supermarket in 2 minutes walking distance with a good selection of food and drinks.
The bad... The room was tiny. We were prepared for pension and not hotel quality, but still. There was barely room to move and no room for our suitcase and clothes in the tiny cupboard. No AC but there is a fan that partially helps (we were here in August, temperatures were around 27C during the day). There was light from the hallway that made it difficult to sleep, noises from adjacent rooms, etc. because the whole facility is basically a big apartment split into a bunch of tiny rooms - and not very professionally constructed either.
The bathroom is tiny and it is nearly impossible to take a shower without hurting yourself or spilling water everywhere. The hose to the showerhead keeps hitting you on the head. The sink is really inconvenient and tiny, with only cold water. The bed and mattress are really inadequate - every tiny move wakes up the other person. No fridge in the room so it's impossible to bring breakfast or supper from the supermarket, or even drinks.
To summarize, it was not very expensive (although not cheap!) but we expected something better. There is no chance we will come back. We would happily pay more for a larger room, AC, a fridge, and a decent bathroom.
