To be fair there are two good things about this hotel; they serve good breakfasts and the trams are within easy access, but that is pretty much it.
We were a party of five people travelling together and had booked three rooms for a weekend. They were all quite shabby, with mouldy patches on the walls/ceiling and with showers that flooded the bathroom floor, when used. The sleep quality was poor as people were running and talking loudly in the corridor during the night, using the fire escape to go out and smoke and slamming the door shut behind them. The staff in the reception was extremely unprofessional and rude. The overall impression is that of a poor youth hostel rather than a hotel and therefor extremely overpriced! I am an experienced traveller and have stayed in hotels and hostels all over the world and rarely have I come across a place of a poorer standard.
I would never go back to this place or recommend it to anyone!
