Me and my friend stayed in this hotel recently and we were little bit disappointed.
There was a television in the room but you could only watch a TV if you'd pay 170 krone which is about 22€ (not that we came there to watch TV but the weather was pretty bad on the first day and we came back to the hotel at 8pm to have a drink and watch a TV before falling a sleep) but that wasn't possible.
When asking to borrow two wine glasses we were told that they can't do that so we were given two paper cups..
They had little brochure in the room which stated that you can get a toothpaste at reception (we forgot to get it at the airport) so when we went down to ask for it we were told by one of the receptionist who didn't seem to understand much English that there's no toothpaste..
My friend had also forgotten to take her phone charger so when she took her phone with a USB cable to get it charged at reception we were told that she can't help us that we can charge it at the public computers (would you sit at public computer charging a phone for two hours?).. we found this really weird as we both work at hotels and we would never say anything like that to a guest.
I would also mention the cleaner who came to the room at 8am waking us up (it wasn't our check out day)!!
I have to mention one receptionist who's name we can't remember but when we asked for help or had questions in regards to food, things to do or see she was very helpful and very nice and professional.
The hotel itself was alright, very close to the tram and bus station and the breakfast was pretty good :)
