When I arrived at the hotel after walking from the centralstation I became aware that the hotelarea didn`t look that promising. The entrance to the hotel were straight opposite the railway/tram and next to a motorbikegarage. Well inside the hotel the woman at the desk was very serviceminded and I hoped the position of the hotel didn`t mather that much.
I got room nr 115 and it was a superior room next to the stairs in first floor. The room itself was allright but the view was terrible. Outside the window I was stearing at a wall in a backyard. Very early I noticed a small shaking of the room and a noise that came every other five-ten minutes. It must have been the tram right outside the hotel.
The sink was leaking, the choice of channels was poor. On the positive note there was to small bottes of cava and some pieces of chocholate.
The worst thing I become aware of while trying to get some sleep. The pillows was terrible. Probably the worst pillows I`ve ever had. And it didn`t stop there. The room next door was very noisy with dogs barking (!) and a couple who seemed to be arguing well into the night. I was very surprises to find out that this was a hotel who accepted pets and that includes dogs obviously. What I didn`t understand was why the hotel gave me a room next to one with two dogs. They should have seperated ordinary customers with those who had dogs and other potentially noisy pets.
The breakfast was very average at best. The choice of food was pretty poor.
The second night I requested other pillows and it was much better than the night before but the couple with the dogs kept me awake until 3 am.
Previous I `ve been at First hotel Avalon, First hotel G and Scandic Opalen and Rica Hotel No 25 was far the worst hotel. Avalon is miles better.
My tip for you is to find another hotel than this. You can do much better.
