My friend and I (two London girls) were in town to do some dance workshops and were looking for somewhere cheap, clean and well-located. This place is right behind the central station, which is perfect for the Metro system as well as the buses to and from the airport. The hotel staff are sweet and helpful (night guy didn't speak hardly any English but the woman on the desk during the day spoke perfect English). The hotel is clean, the bed was big and comfortable and the shower was very hot. It was not at all atmospheric, but for us it didn't matter as we only needed a place to sleep and shower.
The location of the hotel can be a problem for some people. If you are not used to urban environments (in particular, slightly edgy ones) this is not the place for you. Even with the windows shut, you can still hear the traffic outside, so if you are a light sleeper and used to quiet streets, you will not sleep well. There didn't seem to be a/c so in summer, with the windows open, you'd need to either bring ear plugs or be a very tight sleeper to survive.
Also, the location just behind the central station means there are a lot of weird men wandering about. The hotel itself is perfectly secure, but walking to the station can be an experience, although generally an entertaining one.
Oddly enough, we had no hassle at all at night time but did get some mild hassle from the freaky guys on Sunday morning. If you are a woman on your own and not used to handling situations like this, you will not like it.
If, like us, you're used to inner city neighbourhoods, you'll find it perfectly fine.
All in all, not a bad place for the money you pay and it served its purpose perfectly.
