My husband and I stayed here for three nights. The front desk guy was a bit awkward but did help us out with booking a Hop On Hop Off bus, just didn't seem too friendly.
Bartender looked like he knew what he was doing. We got drinks during happy hour...buy one get one free....great deal. Room was pretty nice. We did get a balcony room which was nice. After our 18 hours of traveling I wanted to take a shower as soon as we got in. The shower was super tiny I could barely turn around in it and to make it worse the drain was not draining so we had to call the front desk, they did fix it but I had to take a shower with water to my ankles which is very unpleasant. I was also unaware that in Europe they don't use washcloths? Ended up using a big towel to wash with. Bring washcloths if you come here.
I did enjoy a little face mirror that was nice to put makeup on with at the desk. The bed was comfortable but pillows very tiny. We should have called front desk to get more but we dealt with what we had.
Breakfast was so-so. I was not experienced with European breakfasts...all they had was meat, cheese some bread and some VERY slimy scrambled eggs and of course some weird sausages made of unknown meat. I made a sandwich which was quite tasty.
I did also enjoy the espresso machine that was available for breakfast.
This hotel is VERY far from town center. We used the hop on hop off bus to take us around during the day but one day we had to walk about 4 miles to get to our food tour which took a long time with all the busy streets. I recommend a different hotel if you want to be near all the town stuff. This is close to Heroe's Square and the Zoo that is about it. There is also no touristy restaurants nearby.
Overall room was very comfortable, very quiet, mostly clean and A/C was adequate.
There was a parking garage underneath it that you pay for daily.
We would recommend it if you want to stay away from the hustle and bustle. We wouldn't stay here again because of distance from city.
