In general the property is run down. The shower head would not stay up and needed to be held in place with one hand. The sink was badly worn down and needed to be replaced. A group of creepy men were constantly standing outside and staring at the women in a gross way. A group of similar men stayed outside the hotel playing music and talking very loudly until 3AM. To be fair the sheets were were clean and the bed comfortable. The location is excellent. A few steps away from the Domer and Hohe st.

I liked the location and the receptionist a lot! (Room 109) What I didn't like a lot was that the table still had stains from previous mugs. Also one of the sockets is a bit loose so make sure to properly plug in the charger! In the shower the shower head holder is weirdly angled so you have to hold it in your hand but that's no problem.

The property location is a 10/10 it is located at the heart of the city center. The staff are very friendly as well. The Hotel however is in need of renovation and just feels outdated. On a hot day there is no Air Conditioning and you cannot open the windows since the noise from outside is too much. All the reviews about the strange smell in the rooms etc were true for us. To add to this there was no hot water in the night to the morning. The hotel cleaning staff missed the turndown as well so we had no turndown in the 3 nights we were there unfortunately (They offered a turndown when we complained but this was late at night and we were just looking to sleep) If your neighbors are noisy you will not get any sleep since the noise really travels through the walls. In conclusion Pros: Amazing Location, Friendly staff, good wifi Cons: Funky smelling rooms, No AC, Poor quality sheets and pillows, Amenities are dated, no charging ports at the bedside, no in room safe

4/10 Fair

Great location but not so great accommodation
Location is very central, just a minute away from Dom and the train station. Still, fairly quiet and away from the more trafficed streets, even though the homeless seemed to have a get-together place just around the corner. Room very basic, with a bed, tv, a large table and a chair, and a kettle. No storage, curtains rather poor and letting in a lot of light. Bathroom rather unpleasant, with terrible lighting and from above covered with slats through which one can see there are cables and pipes up there. If the bathroom were more palatable this might be an ok place but based on my experience I'd look for another option when next in town.
