Our mattress was impossibly uncomfortable. It was lumpy and collapsed. The frame was squeaky and loose. When all I look for in a cheap rental is a decent night's sleep, this was worse than disappointing. It was atrocious!

The building I stayed in was not the one shown. It was run down and sure needed upgrading. I like this hotel because it's walking distance to the train station and there are many restaurants around the area.

It was not the property shown it was a different building on the next street. Everyone was really nice but it was quite run down. There was a dead mouse in the mouse trap in the trashcan, I would’ve thought it would’ve been nice to at least have remove that other than leaving it in the room. The sheets seemed clean but the comforter was meh. No hand towels or bath mat. The cable was in and out constantly and the air-conditioner did not work Very well at all.

The property is clean and well managed although the facilities are well used. It is very clean, and the bathrooms are spotless. The walls are a bit thin so you get to hear your neighbors in the hallways or carrying on in their rooms. The staff and guests are multi-national and friendly. My only problem is that I am disabled and the property is not barrier free.

Avoid this place. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Room was not clean and the bed’s mattress was in a very poor condition. The bathroom was full of pubic hair when we got in.

In okay part of town. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Nice quiet street. Good security, can’t get into interior hallway without a key. Very steep entry steps. Bed was comfortable enough to get a good nights sleep. The one small plugin heater was insufficient. Had to keep moving it depending on where I was. From bathroom, to bedroom, to living room. When I went to check out, they said “just drop off the keys.“ Felt a bit off putting.

Nasty room

The room was nasty and had to share a bathroom which was also nasty. For the price of the room expected more.
