I arrived from the airport with a taxi and was a bit shocked at the entrance to this hotel. Very poor first impression with a tiny, dirty, unlit lift taking me up to the reception. But the hotel itself is quite cool, feels like you are sleeping in a piece of history. Ladies working there were all very kind and tried to help with my issues (wi-fi, wi-fi and again wi-fi). If I needed any information they would help. My room was small but very clean. TV did not work but I didn't care about it. I liked the breakfast. The main restaurant is very attractive but needs some TLC. There was some serious mold on the ceiling (note if you have alergies or you suffer from asthma).
Location - close to everything. Lots of young crown around the hotel.
The only reason why I am not giving 5 out of 5 is the internet. The wi-fi did not work in my room throughout my entire stay. It did work around the reception and restaurant.
Pros: central location, clean rooms, nice staff
Cons: mold on the restaurant's ceiling, internet/wi-fi unavailable in my room and one more room I tried.
