    The room smelt of cigarette smoke, even in the bathroom! the blanket had cigarette burn. Super small bed, not comfortable at all for two adults.

    The hotel is very close to the tram stop and just 15 minutes walk to the city centre.

    Well, for regret we had very unpleasant welcome. We came late and the guy sitting in front desk looked at us and said - you'r lucky, I almost cancelled your stay (because he had prob.with cashing us via transfer). No one called us or asked anything about credit card issues. We payed on spot. Room was not cleaned properly - bathroom was full with black hair all over the place; lockers at the bed were dusty and most of all - it's very loud there. In the morning when everybody were going to breakfast or whatever we heard- doors slapping, all movements of cleaning lady and loud chatting as if it happened right next to our bed.

    Location was pretty good. Wi-fi ok.

    The room felt cold but it was very cold outside and then realised extra blankets in cupboard. Hotel is not so easy to find if you take one wrong turning, a sign nearer the centre of town would be useful. If the hotel had its own little bar area it would be perfect.

    The staff were genuinely friendly and willing to spend a little time to chat and answer relevant questions. Staff very helpful and self-service buffet-style breakfast just right, as peace to enjoy breakfast without interruption. I would stay here again when in Grenoble.

    Rooms were far too hot. Our room was on the 4th floor and slept with a sheet with the window open whilst snowing outside. An uncomfortable heat. Staff aware and apologetic. No kettle or drink making facilities in the room. Had a clean bath with a shower hose - had to kneel in the bath to use it - a higher shower head holder would have been nice.

    Staff were wonderful. Room a good size. Nice continental breakfast.

    The photos are completely false and have nothing to do with reality. The room was super dirty. The toilet seat had urinals from the previous tenant and the blanket had hair! It was a mistake choosing it, with almost 10 euros more I could have chosen another hotel, but the photos fooled me.

    I liked nothing about this property.

    In the breakfast room there was not enough space for all the guests at the same time. The exit door at our floor was closed and the handle was missing, so it was very heavy to be open (almost impossible for my girlfriend).

    The bathroom could've been a bit cleaner and a bit more up-to-date, but was sufficient. There were tiny flies wherever it was wet. Not sure, what these were. They didn't bother me, but maybe there was something wrong and they nested in the hotel/area(??). Somewhere outside the staircase was a smelly garbage disposal, but one did not perceive the smell anywhere else in the hotel. The free WiFi in the room was weak (better in the lobby), but sufficient for low volume essentials. The elevator was archaic (actually kind of fun but nothing for elevator-phobic people).

    The hotel staff was outstanding: very friendly and helpful, speaking excellent English! The bedroom was clean and orderly. The non-smoking room did not show any signs of smoke (no smelling sheets or anything like that). The room was renovated and friendly. Although located a bit outside the city centre on a bigger street, it was not noisy or nasty. Breakfast was simple, but delicious.

    There was a bed bugs all over the bed and I've got bitten by the badly. Safe and comfortable bed, is the least one can expect from a two star hotel. I strongly don't suggest this hotel... even uf it is the cheapest available hotel in whoke city. DONNOT GO THERE! I didn't also like the bath, since there weren't any shower. I had difficulty to take a simple shower... I needed to take the douche withone hand and wash my hair and body with other.... very difficult.
