Good location, but disappointed with the hotel.
Posted Jan 2, 2017
We were on the 1st floor, on the side street (front of hotel is on a main road, side of hotel is on a side street) - fine if you don't need to sleep with the window open, but if you do, it's quite noisy, even on the side street. All the rooms we saw (3 of them, including ours) had a frosted glass bathroom wall, but the shower/bath was right next to it, so you can see right through it when the light is on (and you have to have the light on in the bathroom) - probably fine if you're a couple, but we were two friends sharing a room - some (but not all) rooms have a blind you can pull down to counteract this problem. No mirrors near daylight - the bathroom and wardrobe mirrors have spotlights directly from above, casting shadow on your face, ie: impossible for anyone needing to do makeup. Small magnifying mirror in the bathroom, with a light on it, can be used for doing make-up - light on ours was broken, so we asked for it to be mended. Room was missing the blankets and the slippers - we had to ask for them. No kettles/tea provided - admittedly this is usually only expected by UK guests, so we asked for them and they were supplied. The only English TV channel we could find was Russia Today - all other channels were Spanish. The wardrobe space is minimal, and there are only two small shelves - one very high up - for clothes, plus a small drawer. Currently (Dec 2016) there is building work on the top (5th) floor, only a disruption if you're on 4th floor.
