Basic, but I rather liked it
Posted Feb 13, 2009
Re-reading other reviews before I went, I was concerned I had made a mistake, and to be honest my first impression was that it was going to be a very long and uncomfortable two week stay. The room was very basic, but everything worked: the shower was hot, the bed was comfortable (despite the strange pillow arrangement), there was a desk to work at, and the room was cleaned daily. In fact, I grew to like its simplicity. There were a couple of minor problems during my stay, but these were quickly fixed and I found the staff friendly and helpful. This is very much a no-frills hotel - the towels are indeed small, the stairs are not child-friendly and there are no lifts. I would stay here again, but it is not somewhere I would stay with a family. At current exchange rates it is overpriced in terms of what we British expect for our money. If you want carpets, abundant towels, Wi-Fi, satellite TV and freebies - go elsewhere. If you want a brilliantly situated, simple, albeit quirky, base from which to explore this beautiful City, I would recommend it.
