Convenient location ! Very close to the train station and easy walk to the ville/ centre. My room was clean and fairly spacious… and fairly quiet despite the station nearby.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with group
Liked: Amenities
Disliked: Staff & service
Booked 2 rooms - assigned 2 rooms (505 and 605) however room 505 was not clean when we enter with the previous occupant luggage still in the room. Staff arranged and and moved us to room 205. On check out, staff insist we were registered under room 505 with no record on room 605?? After we left hotel, staff called to inform us that we have left a luggage in room 505 (we stayed in 205 and 605)... Separately, paid for city tax and car park charges on check-in but staff mentioned it was not on record but kind to believe... so do ask for receipt ir pay on check out.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property was under reconstruction and dusty, besides reconstruction inside the building there were reconstructions in the street as well just right in front of hotel and it was noisy. The beds in hotel were in such poor condition, ripped old edges and crooked legs that it is hard to describe it. I took a pictures and so upsetting that I can’t submit them. It was the worst hotel I ever stayed. And I am traveling a lot. The 2 star motels are much better than this hotel. If I could give stars I would give -1. Should mention that staff on front desk were nice.
