Do not book!!!
Was unable to check in due to no one being present at the agreed time. despite several attempts to contact some one. We ended up staying at a considerably more expensive hotel. It is ridiculous to prepay for a hotel and not be able to check in. Especially in a city that I have no knowledge of.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Staff & service
The room and the bathroom were clean and not run down. Location was ok if you're in the city only for a couple of days and need to be located close to the train or bus station. But the check-in experience was horrible. The owner of the hotel apparently was not happy to accept guests who made a reservation with Expedia, so he just shouted at me that I arrived late and the check-in is already closed, although I came at 4.30 pm and the check-in is open until 6pm, which is written right on the wall besides the reception desk! After I pointed out that his statement makes absolutely no sense, he just rudely agreed to let me stay, as if he was doing me a great favor.

4/5 Good

Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disliked: Cleanliness
The staff at the reception is very friendly and ready to help. The room smelled strange (I had to open the windows) and it wasn't very clean, this could be seen especially under the bed, where it was full of dust. The local area is not the best but it's very practical because it's near the central train station.
