눉The hotel has a definite mid-century, "time capsule from the 80s" kind of feel, and I don't mean that in a good, "vintage" sort of way. It's rather that it feels - and looks - old and dusty (even if it's reasonably clean). Hotel bars are a guilty pleasure of mine, but I struck out of luck with this one, because they served a very limited array of drinks (at almost double the prince compared with anywhere else). I don't mean anything necessarily fancy, but they had, for instance, only one type of coffee, and the tea selection was limited to green or black. To add insult to injury, the staff was bored & bordering on impolite. Given the above, I can only congratulate myself for the option to have breakfast in the restaurant across the street, or the Starbucks around the corner, at half the proposed hotel price. Also in terms of staff ... there was a couch in our room, which had been unfolded and made into an additional bed. Unnecessarily, since there was a double bed already, sufficient for two people. I asked them to fold it, as it took room in a room that wasn't all that big to begin with, and had virtually no view. The couch was possibly defective, since it was simply thrown together (not folded, so that the parts might fit into wherever they were supposed to slide, and a functional piece of furniture results). It was ugly, impossible to use and gave a sense of "dear guest, fuck you very much". Staff's option to block and clean the elevators early in the morning, just as the guests were waking up, and there was heavy traffic, only added to that. This, in a place that wasn't all that cheap, and where I certainly don't plan to stay again.
눇The location of the hotel is quite good. If not exactly in the middle of things, it is close enough, and transportation is good (very close to the Metro). A few coffee shops and restaurants exist in the area, among which Starbucks, which is literally three steps away. Which is a good thing, considering how breakfast is definitely not value for money, and the hotel bar not exactly up to expectations.

눉Could have been a bit cleaner. The breakfast was not worth the price. The breakfast room needs to be updated.
눇Great value for price! The beds were large and very comfortable. Close location to the Royal Palace.
