Some reviews cited the hotels dated decor, that was certainly the case. But who cares? I don't choose hotels for the ambiance, I choose them based on price and location. The location was great, there is a subway station right in front of the hotel. There was also airconditioning and english tv channels, things that I consider a luxury in a lot of european hotels. The breakfast was fine. The staff was nice. They advertised wifi but you actually have to pay for internet access, it wasn't ridiculously expensive. A review I read on another cite mentioned how hard the pillows were, and that was true, it was the hardest pillow I have ever slept on in my life, but I didn't request a replacement or anything so it must have been tolerable. Bottom line for the money, all things considered, I would definitely stay here again and recommend it.
