Good location, everything else, not so great.
Good location. Our room had a kitchenette, which was basically just a fridge and some storage cabinets, and a stove top. (but no cookware).
Our room overlooked the lobby, hotel bar, and restaurant, so we heard everything that happened in the lobby. Hotel claims to have AC but it had been turned off for the year, even though it was unseasonably warm when we were there in October. We can live without AC but the windows don't open. Staff weren't wiling/able to move us to a different room when we asked. Wouldn't stay again, and wouldn't recommend.
Overall we had a pleasant stay, due to short notice travel we paid $250 per night whic is way too much for this hotel. The location was very convenient, walk to most tourists attractions and a tourist restaurants. The bedding was clean. Due to the urin smell in the bathroom the hotel gave us breakfast vouchers.
This hotel is rated at 4, it is 3 star at best. The interior itself is dated, you can tell they have tried improving it by panting and cleaning the carpets. It is obvious a remodel is in order to bring it up to 4 star standard. I believe most European hotel turn off the ability to run the AC in the winter. With the windows closed the room became rather stuffy, we slept with the window open on the 6th floor with ear plugs in since the partying went on till 4am. The toilet had a constant urin smell even after having the maid clean with bleach and leaving us an air freshener. Maintenance replaced the sink trap but still smelled. My wife called the front desk for a simple question and front desk clerk by the name of Alessio(male with a beard) was rude and condescending.
