This hotel is true old European style. You feel like you have stepped back in the 30s, and smells like it too. One of the hardest things in Eatern Europe is the social acceptance of smoking. For us used to a smoke free life it is very difficult. The room was a bit of a walk, but it was okay. The reception staff was nice, but it is off from the entrance doors used now, so we did not interact with them much. The Internet was costly and not efficient. We complained, but in the end ended up sitting in the entrance area and hooking on to the free wifi from the McDonalds next door. We used a driver who took us on tours, so the location was not a problem for us, although we did walk around some and it did not look like the best offerings of shops and restaurants in the area. But for the price, staying in this classic hotel was a good experience.
