FWIW room size and hotel location are fine! It reminded me of being at some weird place w notes all over telling you when to do things and costs for each thing(that's included other places) short sighted policies in a city where the niceties are included in this price range
It's not the fault of the staff but the mgmt (according to staff) put in place new policies that "nickel and dime" or euro and euro you to deathHotel glo art
Broken(a hole in wall tile) tile in bathroom
18e brekkie plus more € for eggs
18€ for 1 hour use of sauna other place
5e for use of robe
€ more for high speed internet
Entire place had feel of a room with little notes all over in contrast to other hotels in this region this really had the feel of nickle and Diming you (or euro and euro You)
Sadly I decided it wasn't worth it to spend last few days of a great trip like this
As if a manager owner decided to charge one rate for bed then thought "look at all the money I can make by charging for everything else" €18 for brekkie ? 5€ to use a robe? €18 for a 1hr sauna use at another building??
It leaves you with a bad feeling
Room itself was ok but when I added everything up I actually (for the first time ever booked another hotel in the city where things like those mentioned above were included and forfeited the $ I'd spent on this hotel ! Try the Scandic if you want to feel like your business is appreciated!
coming back at night the area was quiet, though I saw three separate incidents of drunkeness
People vomiting, people relieving selves on street)
Room itself was ok but the experience wasn't good ;
the person at reception was nice and even called a museum to see if it was open.
if you don't want breakfast or other amenities this might b ok, but other hotels in this city are a better choice.
