4/10 Fair

First the positives: great area, an overall helpful staff and a surprisingly good breakfast. Now the negatives. The place was old, unmaintained and in bad condition. The biggest issue was that it was on the third floor (no elevator, of course) and stiflingly hot during our stay there (no air conditioner, of course). There was also a weird, inexplicable knocking sound from the roof (sometimes aggressively, sometimes less so) every evening at the same time. Because the room had only one window, which was on the slanted roof, we couldn’t see what it was. Not a good place at all. Though you are paying less than other places in the area, I would avoid it altogether. Weird hotel. Bad value for your money.

Beds were awful. They were visibly saggy. They looked like they should belong in a room rented by the hour. There was a bad smell in the hallways. Location was nearby bars and restaurants.

2/10 Poor

Absolutely vile. Single room is extremely small - just enough width for a bed making getting in and out of it difficult. Bedding had not been changed and staff very disinterested when this was mentioned - though did offer to change room - however by that point i had ended up changing bedding myself. Dining room was empty and in darkness at breakfast time - Staff looked surprised when i went down for breakfast so i took that as a bad omen and decided not to risk it
