Ok so I'm a budget traveller. I book hotels based solely on price and nothing else. My husband and I have always done it like this and have usually been pleasantly surprised but not this time. We booked this hotel for 10 nights as it was super cheap and the location next to the train station seemed great too as we wanted to use it as a base for exploring the city and getting connecting trains and Metro. I swear I slept for a maximum of 2 hours a night for the duration of our stay. Initially we were quite please when we saw we had one of the few rooms with a balcony/terrace. On the first night it because clear that this was a very very bad thing as we shared the terrace with the hotel bar which was next to our room. The walls are paper thin so we had to listen to the drunken revellers next door in the bar and also the drunken people right outside our room door on the terrace. The terrace looks out onto a shard inner courtyard and the building on the other side is not part of the hotel, but regular locals' apartments. We were woken up every morning (if we managed to fall asleep at all) by a woman starting her day yelling along to the tv broadcast of religious songs. The hotel itself is in pretty bad shape and has an air of given-up-ness about it. Our rooms door was hanging off the wall and there was around a 1cm gap all around it where the insulating building material was hanging out. Within five minutes of arriving I had locked myself in the bathroom and I went in, closed the door behind me and the handle came clean off in my hand. It was not even screwed in! I've slept in some hell holes so a bit of peeling paint doesn't really bother me, but this place honestly looked like it was falling down. The shower room was a death trap. On the wall near the skirting board was a plastic cover panel which was hanging off. When we looked closer we realised it was full of electrical cables and much as we tried to keep it on the wall, every time we had a shower water unavoidably sprayed into it as the shower curtain didn't reach all the way round. Pretty dangerous if you ask me but I'm no electrician. We only ate breakfast one morning out of 10 because to be honest it was hideous. I wish I'd taken photos to be honest because no one would really believe it was breakfast. There was a bowl with a few dried up bread rolls, a tray of ham slices, a bowl of cornflakes with no milk to put on them and a pot of coffee. That's it. Really. And the icing on the cake was the waiter in the "dining room" who was happily slicing more ham with one hand while wiping his dripping nose on the other sleeve and coughing profusely. No thanks. I could go on and on all day listing the things wrong with this hotel. People...just don't go there. Spend a few € more and get a good nights sleep somewhere else. I gave it 2 stars; one for the location and the other for the price but they were the only two good things about this hotel.
