Hotel is good looking, staff are helpful, BUT and there are a lot of them….
Convenient location, BUT so noisy. Double glazed windows don't help. Partying goes on all night outside and even at 5AM it is still going on…so if want any quality sleep on a weekend or holiday night, don't stay here.
Was given initially room 115 which is supposedly a superior room. Besides being a shoe box and looking nothing like the Superior room on their website the room is right on top of the buses and trams. Here you have the party noise at night and the trams, cars and buses all day right outside your window.
Then I was shown the 'slanted' room on the 5th floor which is even more of a joke. It would be OK if you are shaped like a triangle and like a snug fit. A great room to study Euclidian geometry.
Finally was given a superior room with decent size that looked like the one I booked on the website ( 311). It was nice provided you don't mind bearing awake all night from the partying ( see above). Best part was when staff told me this was a River VIew Superior room..oh yeah, put your head out the window, turn 90 degree left, and have a few degrees of river view, maybe.
The only view I had outside was the drying underwear hung up in the window of the building directly across the room.
Nice decoration and nice staff, but no way to go back. Try the well located Avenida Palace Hotel which is grander, has bigger rooms, friendly staff and costs the same and no ear plugs required.
