Looks like the Basic recently had a re-do because I did not encounter any of the quality issues noted by other reviewers. Rooms are, as the name states, basic - clean, reasonably sized, and decorated with cheap, modern, Ikea-type furniture. This is not necessarily a bad thing - it will get you through the night. Think: downgraded Ibis-style hotel. The...

Don't get near it. Rooms are big and comfort but no hot water, most rooms are above main street... it's very noise. Do not eat in that hotel. All facilities are 50 years (and more) old.... not recommended!!!

This is in NO WAY a 3 star hotel 1 star maybe.... The staff is very nice and they tried to help me by moving me to what I was told was their BEST... it was an improvement but still completely unacceptable. It is old and used up. We were here for only one day and moved to another hotel....

In my opinion the rating this hotel should get is one star. When we checked into this hotel I thought that maybe they forgot to clean the room. I actually asked the staff if they had a clean room to which they promptly replied that they clean the rooms daily. The pillows looked like somebody already slept on them. The...
