Staff was helpful and friendly. Rooms were tiny but clean and well-arranged. In the hall the carpeting was partially torn up, baseboards were missing, and old cupboards were tied shut with string -- We assumed they were about to recarpet. We stayed 8 nights and could walk to everything we wanted to see. When we wanted to go farther afield, we took the nearby tram. The pool and sauna were nice. The huge breakfast was amazing at first, but we tired of the sameness after 3-4 days. Assuming the hallway redecoration is complete, we'd recommend this hotel to anyone on a budget. We paid 69 euro per night.
On the negative side, there are restaurants up and down the street -- apparently all for tourists, all all equipped with aggressive touts who will use any tactic to get you inside. It was like running a gauntlet to leave the hotel in the evening until we discovered shortcuts. We had good humor about it, though, and it wasn't much of a negative.
On our last night, late in November, we couldn't get the room cool without opening windows and the loud music from the street didn't stop until 2 PM.
Other than those minor negatives, we loved the place and would stay there again.More
