The positive about this hotel is the location within walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants. The rooms were well sized and offered everything one needed (tea/coffe making facilities/ironing/desk for working etc).
The hotel is very traditionally furnished and is in dire need for a major refurbishment: Room furnitures are old, TV was working rather spontaneously, bathroom quite old and no attention to detail whatsoever. We were there while it was very cold so we had a warm blanket. However, the "duvet cover" was only a sheet which kept coming off the blanket. This was both uncomfortable and a bit disgusting as you can't be sure how often the blanket is cleaned....
I have never been at a Marriott where housekeeping was so unmotivated... Once the remote was underneath my blanket on the bed, once they didn't even bother to put all pillows back on the bed.
To sum up: the hotel is old in every sense of the word. Location is good.
