On arrival we were greeted by a very pleasant young lady who spoke good English. We checked in straight away with no problems. She gave us a local map and showed us directions to the local sites.
Basic Info - Our room was very clean, modern, light and spacious.The bed was very comfortable, the towels (2 per person) were soft, shower gel, soap & shampoo were provided. Also the room had a small safe, a small fridge and a small area to hang clothes up if need be.
The layout was unusual from most hotel rooms as this had a separate sleeping area at one end of the room then it had sliding doors to a sofa, a small table with a kettle, 2 cups and 2 tea bags, but no coffee, opposite the sofa was the shower then round the corner was the toilet and a wash basin. It might sound odd but the layout worked really well.
We had a front room with a small balcony overlooking the street below. It probably wasn't the quietest of rooms we've had but nothing to moan about, and once the patio doors were closed the noise wasn't a concern at all.
Breakfast was 8.00 - 12.00 but you could go earlier if you had a early flight or train to catch, so very helpful. Breakfast itself was basic but ok with your usual juices, cereals, meats & bread. Also you could get free tea / coffee throughout the day downstairs in the breakfast area.
Location was good only about a 15 minute walk to most tourist areas, Cathedral, Shops, Galleries, Squares etc.
Their are quiet a few restaurants near by, reasonably priced, especially Curry ones if that's what you like, but other choices as well. Their is also a supermarket just round the corner.
From the Airport to hotel by train is about 30 minutes and costs €2.50 per person, then its about a 10 minute walk to the hotel from the main train station, from the Airport to hotel by the Metro is €5 per person though requires several changes, but not difficult to do, then its a 5 minute walk from the nearest Metro station, the bus is also €5 per person but a lot slower. Lastly the Internet was good, fast, reliable and free.
Overall I would highly recommend the Artrip Hotel, for good value for money, good location and very helpful pleasant staff.
