We were a party of seven, rooms were ok, nothing much to say about the stay in itself.
The only problem we experienced was at check out time: we asked the receptionist if we could leave the luggage in their custody for a few hours. Bad bad bad idea: they left the luggage unattended only a few meters near the main entrance. Upon our return one bag was missing. Best scenario: someone entered and help himself. Worst scenario: some staff member from the guest house did it.
What is for sure is that at the guest house they literally didn't care. I must admit the receptionist was sorry. For what precise reason I am not sure. Was she sorry because of our luggage was “lost”, or because this “loss” implied some additional work for her? I let you choose. She just didn’t care. It was simply not her business. She didn’t seem to take any responsibility for leaving our luggage unattended.
Unfortunately as we had a plane to take we didn’t have much time for struggling further more; no time left to go to the police, ….
And once again guest house staff were everything but helpful.
The morale to the story: sometimes you realize why some things are so cheap. In fact, one way or another, life makes you pay the whole price. That’s something one has to admit, some kind of hidden rule in life I guess…
Another morale? Sometimes trusting people also has a price…

Hotel Merlin is an excellent value. It's location is convenent and the neighborhood quiet. Rooms are older but large and comfortable. Breakfast is verygood with a variety of juices, cereal, yoghurt, etc.
I plan to stay there again in the future.

This is basically a very basic room. It does not offer any food so not a guest house in the UK sense.

The rooms were updated with new but very cheap beds etc. My wardrobe only had a curtain and not a door. The bookshelf almost fell apart. The photos make the rooms look a lot better than they are. The walls are paper thin. Showers were good. I had 4 electric sockets. No kitchens so they cannot be called apartments.

Only stay here if you are looking for a crashpad.

The front door band shuts very loudly and with guest returning anything from midnight to 6am you may be woken by the noise a great deal. There is also a very large bench along the side of the stairs and as there is no light that is always on in the hallway is it easy to crash into it. Very dangerous in my book. The lack of lighting i felt was very poor yes there are on off switches but the light went off too quickly leaving you in the dark.

There really is very little to do on the doorstep you will always be going back into the centre of town. There were also prostitutes hanging around on the corners which did surprise me as you are quite a way out of town.

The rooms are on 1st floor to 6th floor. Check before you book. If you are out on the beer you do not want to climb 6 flights of stairs late at night.

The location is OK. Walkable to old town in 20 mins. The staff can helf with the trams taxis etc.

I always walked, but it got to be a drag late at night, as I did not know the trams and used taxis instead when a little worse for drink.

To conclude, yes the rooms are cheap, but next time I will pay the extra and get a real appartment.

This place is nothing more than a upmarket hostel.
