    It was very cold in the room (in November) and the heating is terribly noisy. There was a minifridge in the room but it was not plugged in. Unfortunately there were no sockets to plug it in, so we couldn't use it at all. It is not the hotels fault but I have to mention it that it is very difficoult to park your car in the area (we have rented a car at the airport). There is a market nearby so you can't move in the streets by car, so the market makes it very difficult to reach the Bellini garage where it is recommended to park.

    Great location, all the main sights are within walking distance. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean, we liked the huge windows, it was really bright. The coffee at the breakfast was good. It is a good value for money.

    Breakfast was so so. Rather a hostel breafast than of a 3 star hotel. The daily market is right at the street of the hotel. In the morning it might wake you up.

    The girl at the reception spoke English very well! Better than any other person I've met at a reception. Close to the center and walking distance to trainstation.

    Nice little place, more comfortable than a large chain hotel. Staff were helpful and a good breakfast. Room was a good size although the bathroom did tend to feel a bit hot inside and i could fathom why. You let yourself into the building and the hotel at night. There was a bit of noise from the daily market, but although it got me up early on the first monring it did not bother me the following days. Modern hotel and i enjoyed it and would stay here again.

    I didnt like two things that convinced me never recommand the hotel to my friends. First,there was a problem with the sewage: the bathroom smelt awful. It was impossible to leave the door opened during the day/night because the alterate air came in the whole room. The windows didnt have nets and the mosquitoes could freely enter in the room. Second,the hotel has few rooms on the first floor of a normal building, all of them with windows to a little street - every day on this street a very noisy market took place. We couldnt sleep more than 4 AM because of the cars and merchants turbulence. At 9 PM the stuff left the building and you had to manage alone with the keys.

    I liked the location because is very close to the center (5 minutes walk), but the area was unsafe (especially in the evening) because there were a lot of weird people. For this reason the street and the rest areas were very dirty. I like the stuff because they were friendly and eager to hepl us with everything. Near the hotel we could find nice restaurants and brand shops.

    Fridge that was broken hummed all night. Was unable to pull the cord from the socket. There were no glasses in the bathroom (or bedroom) so that you could drink a glass of water. There was also a constant musty smell - they need to air the rooms.

    The staff were fabulous and helpful with organising a morning taxi to the airport for me. The bed was also confortable (and clean). Room was clean. The location was central however due to the shortness of my trip did not get to experience the city centre properly.

    The street the hotel in on is blocked with street markets, and is not drive able. As the driving is so chaotic in the middle of the city, it would greatly help if directions to the car park a couple of blocks away are given before you get there.

    The hotel did not look promising from the outside, but once upstairs, the rooms were comfortable, clean and well laid out. The breakfast was average.
