A good short stay
We had a late check-in at 3am in the morning. The person at reception was helpful speeding things up so that we can go straight to our rooms to rest. We booked two triple beds rooms. We had a good short stay at this hotel.

Great Value - Good Location - Thoughtful Service
First off, this is a smoking hotel where guests can smoke in their rooms. If the smell of cigarette smoke really bothers you, this hotel might not be your best choice. Otherwise, we had a spacious room with a small sitting area and 2 big windows - that opened! - looking onto the back courtyard. The room was quiet, the bed comfortable, and the air conditioning was excellent, keeping us cool even during 30°+ days. The wifi was great, too: fast and reliable. Service was lovely. We asked to look at 3 different rooms and the front desk clerk was amenable. One evening, we asked to sit in the pretty seating in the courtyard, and the front desk gentleman intuited that we wanted to have our evening meal there - we had a bag of take-away groceries from the 24-hour supermarket next door - so offered us plates, cutlery, and even glasses for our beers! The room itself might not be the cleanest - walls need a good wiping as do lightswitches and such - but bed linens and the bath were spotless. The location of the hotel is excellent: a 7 minute walk from Bourchier Metro, a cheerful outdoor beer garden at the top of the street as you exit the Metro, and the hotel itself is next to a well-stocked 24-hour supermarket. This hotel is excellent value for money. I'd return.

Tired Hotel
Hotel is a bit tired and my jacuzzi bath was in a poor state. Not much in area but it was only a quick stop over for me.
