Was weighing this hotel up against another one close by for the same price. Should have chosen that one:
Hotel itself is quite nice for the price. Rooms look like they have had a recent re-fit which has been well done.
Single rooms are extremely poky but workable. Shower does flood the bathroom a bit but that's no biggie.
Beds were comfortable, and room was very clean.
Service was not what I would call super-friendly, but I was not there to buddy up to the staff, so that was fine.
For whatever reason, there was an extraordinary amount of heat coming through the floor. Either it was a heating system with a rogue thermostat or there is some kind of industrial kitchen (or nuclear reactor!) downstairs.
Whatever it is it makes the room stiflingly hot. And not just stuffy but I mean possible health code violation hot.
It was obvious that this was an ongoing problem as when I checked in both the thermostats in the room were already set at zero (to no effect).
You can open the door on to the patio to cool the room down, which works, but you are also inviting in some Belgian mosquitos as room guests.
Lucky for me I was only transiting the following day and did not have an important meeting - I left the place feeling like steamed mullet!
