I stayed one night there in August. I had booked a room online for $35, and my very late arrival did not cause any check-in problem. Let me start with the downside of the hotel. The elevator either did not exist or work, and I had to walk up to the sixth floor. There was no food or even a vender machine, so I braced myself by walking several blocks after midnight to find some food on a street. One man made me a sandwich. The bread looked and tasted like an English muffin. He spread butter, and added pulled-back beef, a slice of ham, and an egg. It was delicious. He said it would be $3, but he gave me a coin, which was not a dollar but a half dollar. So it cost $3.5, but the sandwich was nutritious and tasty. The shower was fine, but no towel was provided. The room was clean, but the TV did not work. The saving grace was the working AC. The bed was average. I left my luggage there after I checked out. I had no difficulty retrieving it, although two girls who worked different shifts there did not understand or speak English. The hotel is sandwiched by two hotels. On one side is a bigger and better hotel called “Eurohotel,” where I ate my breakfast for $5. On the side is a smaller and unique pension, which charged $10 an hour. If you finish a city tour, and have no hotel to go, you can take a break there. Overall, I got your money's worth. For better or worse, the hotel is very memorable.
