A great time overall!
I booked this hotel for 9 nights and I've decided that your experience in this hotel simply depends on which room you stay in.
When we first checked in we were assigned to a room that was not up to any standards i would want to stay in a lengthy amount of time in. The bathroom in this particual room was insanely small and not very clean. And the room itself was very dark (even when you turned on the lights) and it just wasnt what i wanted to stay in for 9 nights.
So - we switched our room up to the 5th floor (prepare yourself for quite a few steep steps!) to room 30. The room was facing the "courtyard" - not the street which made it so much quiter then the previous room. And second- it was a comfortable size with a much larger, more average size bathroom.There were hardwood floors and a large closet along with a clean and comfy double bed. Ive also decided the higher up you are, the quieter it is- it wasnt noisy at all during our stay and the hotel was full.
Here are my pros & cons of this hotel.
- Very friendly staff! My boyfriend and I had great conversations with them almost every morning and night and they were extremely helpful providing us with any information on how to get us to our tourist attractions for that day
-I felt very safe in the neighbourhood and the metro couldnt be any closer to your doorstep- plus youre around a ton of great restaurants and markets for food ; shops for clothing and what not - its a very central, easy to get to location
-the hotel had a telephone and computer in it
- The breakfast in the morning is definately worth the price, a huge piece of bagette and croissant with coffee or a hot drink and juice, it was very convienient!
- A great room (be sure to climb the stairs without your luggage to check it out first!)
-There was a ton of stairs, you get used to it after a few days- but its definately a work out depending what floor youre on!
-As odd as this sounds- our bed made a kind of crunchy noise from the mattress cover- it was almost "plasticy" instead of fabric so it could get super annoying at night if you rolled over etc.
----I would definately come to this hotel again & both my boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay here!
