This hotel is in an excellent location. The young staff are very helpful. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable and modern. Always free coffee/tea/water and cookies in the lobby. The rooms are on an inside courtyard, so it is very quiet even though it is on a busy street. Don't be put off by the stairway going up which needs paint and cleaning -- it serves the whole building. The hotel is all refurbished. I'd stay there again any time.

Excellent hotel. The staff there are wonderful. Very helpful and willing to help out with assistance and information. All of them spoke English very well making it very easy for us to communicate. It was my first time visiting Europe and I did not know what to expect. I delightfully surprised with the hotel. Great location in the city for sightseeing and using public transportation. The entrance is a little difficult to locate the first time but nothing unmanageable. Do not judge the hotel by the entrance way. it is a little dark and not so appealing as you make your way to the hotel. Once you get to the hotel it is well lit, clean and well taken care of. I would not hesitate to use this hotel again or recommend it to any of my friends, family or associates.

The (young girls) staff are very nice and helpfull, that helped us to explore the beautiful city. As we could not expand our stay in their hotel, they did all the efforts to find a budget hotel in the neighborhood. At the reception we had sweets, hot and cold drink (and smiling faces) for free! The location of the hotel was excellent for me and the room satisfied my needs. We'll recommend the hotel with all our heart!
Minor disadvantageous: The room was a little bit small for double occupancy. No internet station. Several stairs you must climb to reach the elevator (inconvenient for handicapped).

Stayed there a few days. Very friendly, helpfull (young) staff. They speak English very well. Clean rooms, with airco (comes in handy when it's 40 degrees outside)! Don't let the outside of the building scare you off because it's a really good price-quality deal. And the location is very 'central' as the name states :-) Greetings from Belgium.

When I first arrived I almost turned around - it was getting late and the entrance is not at all appealing - flaking paint and crumbling stairs. BUT when you eventually find the hotel (it is on what the British would call the 2nd floor - i.e. up two flights of stairs) all of that will be forgotten.

The hotel is extremely clean and the decoration and fittings very modern. The beds were comfortable and the showers very hot and powerful. More importantly, the staff here are the most friendly I have encountered anywhere - nothing is too much trouble for them and they are always willing to help. I would stay here again without a doubt.

Excellent, excellent value for very central hotel. Large, clean room (triple)--high ceilings, spacious room. all necessary amenities. very comfortable but without youth hostel feel. building security good, as a few dodgy people around. great free breakfast at local cafe. friendly, professional staff. drawback--room next to door to reception, so a bit loud and felt like people could see in when curtains open. free coffee/tea throughout day and wifi.

Room Tip: get triple for a little extra for enormous room
