Reasonable value for moneyPosted Mar 17, 2010
Proximity to subway (from airport) was good. The building is an old apartment building in which the hotel occupies the third floor. The street level front door opens right off the sidewalk and is very basic - old, a little dirty, and with a buzzer to the 3rd floor. However, the family that runs the place is very welcoming and prompt about answering the buzzer. There is a small elevator, although it is not marked, so we carried our luggage up 2 levels before we found out about the elevator. The hotel (really more of a hostel) is kind of dark. The room we had was sparsely furnished, but it had a balcony looking out over the street and had it's own (tiny) bathroom. Some rooms don't have their own bathroom. The room was clean and we had no trouble with noise. The room would be greatly improved by having some bedside table lamps, both from a practical and an ambience standpoint. The hotel location is great - walking distance to all the major attractions as well as the train station.
