“Not as Qaint as Expected for a B & B”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2011

Overall this place was not bad, but in US standards this is not a B & B. It is located on the 2nd floor (what they call the 1st floor) of a large building containing several other units. Each area was located behind a outer security door with a security camera which was linked to the main hotel. The section we stayed in had 4 rooms. The main hotel was down the street from this building. Anytime you needed services from the front desk you had to bundle up and run down the street. When you left/returned you had to go to the main hotel to drop off/pick up your room key. After picking up the key and returning to your security door you had to wait to be buzzed in--an extra security feature (not sure if it is an unsafe area as we didn't have problems).

The plus for this hotel is that it is located only a 5 minute walk from the train /metro station. Sadly, the train station gives all its visitors the hard realities of today's lacking economy--many homeless people take refuge here--but again, no trouble. This is a sad fact that can be found throughout the world.

The hotel has internet, but the service is NOT free as advertised. When you ask for the code for internet connection they tell you that only the 1st half hour is free, after that you must pay by the hour or in blocks of time. The connection is not a great connection and therefore, we had to keep the computer in an ackward position in order to recieve it.

The bathroom was nice, the rooms were clean, and security was high. Front desk is 24 hours/ 7 days a week. Breakfast was the next floor up, but they did not have a large selection of items and they had mixed matched silverware and plastic ware--one morning there were no forks available. The staff at breakfast tried as best as they could with English, the front desk was more fluent.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2010

Booked the room from one of the more popular website. Told that it comes with free breakfast and internet. The suites is situated in an old building with an antique type of elevator. The stairs was dark. You have to walk 3 blocks down the street to collect keys from another hotel. Upon check in, was told internet is only free for 30 mins throughout my stay of 2 nights. You have to walk to another hotel for breakfast. The only consolation is thatis is about 50 metres from the train station and subway. For those using train as the mode of travel, the location is very convenient. You actually get a better rate if you walk in and negotiate.
