Tiny, but fine for a short stay
Posted Jun 10, 2015 on Hotels
The room was very tiny and impractical. Especially the bathroom. There were no desk in the room if one needs to do any work on the laptop or write a postcard. It had no smoke detector and there were no emergency fire exit that leads to the opposite direction of the staircase. The room was fairly clean, but the litter boxes were not emptied every day and there was some small drops of undefined dark brown splatter (or perhaps mold) around the bathroom door. You could hear pretty much anything that went on in the hallway and neighbouring rooms. The standard was almost as low as it gets. That's why I would call this a motel or hostel, rather than a hotel. The elevator did not work when I was checking out.
On the positive note: The staff was friendly and polite, the street was quiet and safe and the reception had a person on watch inside the hotel during night time. The wi-fi and AC was working fine too. It's less than a ten minute walk from the train station, about ten minutes to the waterfront promenade or the convention centre, and about 15 minutes to the old town. To be fair: This hotel room was the cheapest to be found in the city centre.
To summarize: It's quite fine if you're only staying a couple of days and don't need to use your hotel room as an office. If you're a big person, this might actually be too tiny for you.
