The room itself is small, with a table and one chair, even though it's a double bed room.
There were a few things which were obviously missing or broken that should have been fixed before they let people in: Missing rack above the sink (which was tiny), hairdryer, all the coat hangers were broken in the tiny closet, can't completely turn off radiator so it was really warm in the room. The bed cover was stained and should have been thrown away long ago.
We could only get wifi signal if we literally pushed the phone next to the room's door and it constantly disconnected, even though they have a broadcaster in every floor, this could have to do with our corner room. The wifi at the reception was OK.
The elevator was small but we could fit both of our large suitcases and us inside, though we had to hug to fit (That was the only romantic aspect of this hotel).
The outside street was noisy and the windows didn't help much, when we came back in to the hotel in the evening we saw a group come in smoking cigars and the receptionist didn't tell them anything, so I assume they allow smoking. Either way our room smelled of cigar smoke since they happened to stay on our floor.
Their luggage keeping service is a small service closet and when we asked to put our luggage in there we were told there was no room and that we could leave our suitcases in the lobby and that it will be ok. Evidently, it was ok, but we were rather worried the entire day, especially since we planned on coming back for the luggage and leave immediately to the airport.
the neighborhood and the nearby area didn't feel very safe to us. It wasn't as bad as other places we read about, but we didn't want to walk outside after 9PM while we felt perfectly comfortable walking outside much later on the 7th quarter.
The bed was comfortable and we were able to sleep late like we planned.
The receptionists were kind and helpful and we were allowed to check in an hour earlier than formally published.
We paid 63 euros for the night there, since we had a discount of 10 euros from an earlier booking someplace else.
Considering what we looked for originally, we believe we got what we payed for, maybe if we switched room we would have gotten a better kept one, but it was sufficient for the one night.
We wouldn't go back there, since there are better options in the city in this price range.
