These people really try. The front desk personnel were super plus friendly plus spoke excellent English. The curb appeal is greatly lacking: somber, flat, undistinguished. I am not a hotel snob but I have to admit that my heart sank when I saw this. My thought was, oh man this is a dump and I'm too tired to look for another place. But, we soldiered on and were warmly greeted by the desk clerk. It looks like a roomy dorm, and in keeping with that theme the rooms were like roomy dorm rooms. No amenities in the bathroom (soap comes in a ketchup packet like thing) although the bath tub was one of those fabulous long, deep numbers. The bed was OK, the bath linens were just OK. The front desk is closed for the night but when we had to leave at 5am, the night desk clerk went out of his way to give the cab company contact info in case of a hiccup. He was a very thoughtful, intelligent young man and we had a very interesting conversation as was the young lady on day shift. The location seems to be good and the Korotan is a few blocks away from at least 2 fabulous restaurants (a small Italian place and a traditional Austrian restaurant - both recommended by the hotel staff). The included breakfast was very good and the sort of European breakfast that I like. This place has the bases covered: good heat, quiet, reliable and free wifi, plenty of hot water, a good rate, and an acceptable bed. Just remember that it's no frills.
