This establishment is not a hotel. Hotels have amenities and supply a service. I chose this hotel after specifying one with car parking facilities. this place has none and is incorrectly claiming it has facilities.This place does nothing more than supply rooms and breakfast. You are not trusted with keys but have to ring the bell to enter. It is a collection of bed-sits on the second floor with no lift. You have to negotiate two flights of a narrow staircase with your luggage to get to the front door. If you want a drink you have to leave the "hotel" and go to a machine in the entrance of the building on the ground floor. If you want the window open you will be kept awake by the very nearby trains. The walls are paper thin, we laid in bed listening to our neighbour snoring and the alarm going off in the mornings. We knew when she was urinating and showering. When she blow dried her hair we had to turn up the volume on the T.V.
The owner is a nice gentleman and makes terrific coffee in the morning.
On the plus side there are some nice antiques in the room such as the telly, A.C and the plumbing. It is very handy for the bus to the city centre, its right outside? The bed is more like a hammock as my wife and I kept rolling down into the middle. Fortunately we found a pharmacy to help get back pain pills, I have had an op many years ago but not suffered since, until i stayed here.O how we laughed.
There are squashed Mosquitos on the wall and curtains, how hard is it to wipe the walls?
I suppose if you are back-packing then this is ideal but it is certainly not a hotel.
