Booked a room for three nights over New Years, and upon arrival was initially impressed with the lobby area. Very modern, funky and bright. But that's where the positive experience stopped for myself.
After stumbling through the dark unwelcoming corridiors, more suited to a cheap nightclub and in bizarre contrast to the cheerful lobby area, I found my room tucked away in a corner. Upon opening the door I was greeted by a terrible, musty smell. The room completely stank and like other reviewers have noted, all the walls were covered in black marks. This felt more like a youth hostel!
I explained at the desk what was wrong and a man was dispatched with a spray of some kind. We went to check the room together and after talking to him he said the Hotel building was old and became damp quickly and that this smell happened in other rooms. We left all the windows open but after a few hours, I came back to the same damp smell.
I was given another room which was comparatively fragrant compared to the other. This room also had the dirty walls, a nice big stain on the bedding and a great big hole in the middle of one of the towels!
At the positive end the rooms are quite bright, and the location is okay. Having a tram stop outside is very convenient, but having to get two 20 min tram journeys every day became tiresome. (And especially on New Years Eve when transport stops at 8pm, so you have a LONG walk to get to anywhere!)
A basic hotel in the end which promises much but delivers very little other hotels in the same price range can do much better.
