    Room was very spacy and clean, very good bed, good breakfast, and value for money.

    Facing to the street, it was very noisy early morning with sound of garbage collecting trucks.

  • Single

    Quite large rooms, newly restyled

    No mirror in the room. Nearby hotel there currently are road works and was diffcult to reach the hotel by car

    Besides good location, special thanks to your staff-Tom for his kind assistance and also everyone.

  • Older travelers

    The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast wasnt bad although the fruit juice was watery.

    The refurbishment is not yet finished. There was dust everywhere in the room all the time and this was not cleaned during the day whilst we were out. I ended up cleaning it myself. The towels were replaced but the bathroom sink was not cleaned. Again I did it myself. The worst thing was that we ended up with severe bites on the last day of our stay. The water was disconnected in the afternoon and when we went to bed at night we could see the insects flying round the room. We could not sleep and still have the after effects of the bites.

    Large room with tea/coffee facilities. Public parking place (12 eur/ night) is extremely close to the hotel - next door literally. Newly renovated bathroom.

    Great location, very close to the train station. The main shopping streets are few minutes walk away, many diamond shops on the same street as the hotel, as well as restaurants and cafes. The room was comfortable, clean and had the biggest tv I had ever seen in a hotel before. Breakfast was tasty, many things to choose from. The stuff at the front desk was very kind and ready to provide any information we needed. There is a garage right next to the hotel, make sure you ask for a discount at the front desk. I would highly recommend the hotel, great value for money.

    The only thing you should know is that, due to some works on the street where the hotel is, it is not easily accessible. We parked at a street nearby, walked to the hotel and then the girl at the front desk gave us a map and explained how to reach them by car.

    The buffet Breakfast

    The room did not have any heating so we slept in the freezing cold. The staff did offer us extra blankets, but I would expect hotel room heating to be working when the temperature is as cold as 2 degrees Centigrades!

  • Single

    Very spacious room, quick internet, 47inches flatscreen tv, breakfast was ok.

    Room was sometimes cold, staff not friendly enough.

    Location

    A little noisy during the late night. Heavy and loud footsteps could be heard from room above.

  • Single
    9.2

    Courteous staffs and service at the reception, well cleaned bedrooms with its state of the art design.

    Well basically no complains, but I think the hotel needs to fix and do a much better maintenance to its lifts. Applying sound-proved double glass in each room would complement its modern rooms!

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    It was simple, but the important features were excellent - extremely comfortable bed, and clean modern bathroom. Also the room was surprisingly spacious.

    It was quite noisy, with noise both from the street and from within the hotel.

  • Couple
    5.4

    Location was good- right outside the central station.

    The level of cleanliness in the room was very poor. It looked nice at first glance, but there were hairs in the bathroom sink and on the walls, there was mould on the shower tiles, and there were dirty marks on the mirror. Disgusting! Will not be staying here again.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    We had a nice breakfast. The room was equiped with air-conditioning.

    The hotel is situated in the discrict a bit sad. (Inoccupied building, so on) Besides, the room was noisy with car passing in the street. We heard also the other room's noise.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Very close to train station, very nice big room, huge tv, all new decoration. Parking outside hotel also a parking garage next to the hotel. Lots of restaurant around.

    The toilet has stains, if bleach it would be much better, as all rest of the room looks new and clean, only the toilet looks dirty but it's fairly new decorated.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    The location was the best, near everything shopping, museums, aquarium, china town, main train station etc. The room was a good size for a family of 4.

    They didn't have my reservation but was able to find us a room. The room does not have a mini frig so had trouble keeping milk cold for the young one. The venting system is not that great, we could smell other peoples smoke from other rooms in our bathroom as well as in the hallway. The shower had no door, it was just over a tub so we had to sit in the tub to shower. There was no free wifi.
