Over-furnished but comfortable, dodgy area
Posted Jun 8, 2015
Although the area didn't feel unsafe, it just wasn't very pleasant to walk through every day - a red light area plus lots of mobile phone/phone abroad shops, with big groups of men just hanging around on street corners. I don't usually get bothered about that kind of thing, but it deterred me from going to and from the hotel more than once a day. It is however only ten minutes from the main station so it's good for transport.
That said, it's a very friendly & comfortable small hotel, and the rooms are very well-equipped. It's a bit over-furnished, which made the room feel stuffy in the warmish weather.
There's no lift.
Breakfast is served in a very stuffy downstairs room that felt cramped, and I had to share a table. That felt incredibly uncomfortable as a lone traveller. The buffet wasn't worth 11€ I felt, so my second day I got breakfast elsewhere.
So a decent little hotel but it wasn't the right choice for me.
