Everything was good except the fact that I pay for breakfast and only had a bottle of water and a croissant. I understand the Covid is making everything difficult but it is better not to take the breakfast

Hotel located close to metro station with a few restaurants conveniently around. The bed was comfortable and the shower was nice. However, the room had a bit of an off smell. I don't know if that is always the case or they were having issues as the next day the lobby smelled like sewer and I got to witness a maintenance guy go off on one of the hotel managers about something leaking and him not being given the tools/opportunity to repair. Maybe all smells will disappear once the issue is fixed? Also (minor) the VIP amenity is free WiFy but everyone gets free Wifi...

Nice clean and near public transport.
Nice clean hotel, the only thing to change is the carpet in the rooms. The carpet looks clean however these days for hygiene and easy cleaning hotels should avoid them in the bedrooms. Hotel fairly well situated not far from public transport getting you to all touristic and shopping sites. I will stay there again.
