Perhaps of our late arrival and we went out at 7am the next morning, we did not feel very safe in the neighborhood where this hotel is located. There were many homeless people hanging around the square opposite this hotel. And as we were walking down the street in the morning, there were locals that told is do not go down to the alleys! However when we were done with our tour about 4pm, the square were more lively and more tourist. This hotel actually is located at a good location very close to the main square.
The reception staff was helpful but when he wanted to double sure that he locked the front door, that really scared us. It was like even the hotel staff didn't think it is safe there!
The staff helped us with one bag and showed us our room. There was no lift so we had to walk up some stairs.
The room door was very old and had a weird lock on it. It took us a while to lock and unlock the door. It would only open one side from outside and one man barely for through the door. We had to walk into the room by walking sideway.
We found that the room had a weird smell, something like a cat's pee. The "king" bed was the combination of two single bed where one of just keep trapping in the gap. It was not very comfortable
No English Channel on the flat screen TV, no hair dryer and the safe won't work and the "blanket" is actually a bed sheet
We love the free wifi that actually worked. There are a few power wall sockets so we didn't have to fight
The breakfast was very good.
We may not want to come back to this hotel due to the weird smell in the room.
