Very good 8.0
The personal was very helpful. The apartment was very nice and comfortable . The hotel is near the bus stop and the bus station. Thank you.

Poor 2.0
Never again
Booked trip based on photographs and when arrived at the hotel we were shown to hostel type apartments which were unclean and in need of doing up. Complained to hotel reception to be told the manager wouldn’t be in until following day. Throughout the stay (as no other accommodation available) found a condom in one of the bins along with a dirty nappy. Dissatisfied is an understatement.

Good 6.0
Not great
The hotel is based in relatively central city location. The room was renovated recently but not everything has been updated. The windows did not open properly so had to literally put a stone under it to keep it open. There were marks on the curtains showing them unclean. The shower did not have any hot water during morning and evening which was disappointing.

Lovely Hotel
We were given an apartment type room over the road from the main hotel. There were three of us sharing and room was very large with a massive bed and sofa bed. Room was very modern and bathroom looked as though it hadn’t long been refurbed. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly. There was a bit of noise from doors being shut and showers being used but it was an old building so it was to be expected but it didn’t affect us at all. Only issue was we hadn’t been left enough bath towels (two bath towels on first night and only one on the second) but we managed to sort this out. Location of hotel was brilliant, just down the road from lots of restaurants and bars and a 15 min walk from the train station. Would definitely stay here again.
