10/10 Exceptional

Central location
I have stayed here a number of times, why do I return ?, because it's very central location only a few minutes walk from the central station is so convenient, it is close to late night music venues etc., it is somewhat basic, but is very clean and the staff are helpful. One word of warning, the very steep stairs may not suit older or less energetic visitors, but this is typical of many hotels in the area.

2/10 Poor

Worst experience I have had as far as I remember. The guys at reception look dodgy as hell, look (and behave)like members of marfia or gang in the movies. (Not sure they actually are or not.) Rude staff who are treating their customers as worthless or as if the customers owe them something big. I don’t really understand how they could manage to continue business like that. May be due to convenient location in the city centre. So bear in mind you have to trade off everything just to stay at convenient location.

YEOW! Avoid at all costs
Wow! Really BAD hotel. Teeny-tiny rooms up LOTS of staircases which were narrow. Tiny bathrooms. Door handles fell off in our hands. No TV (it had apparently fallen off the wall). No breakfast, even though advertised as "free breakbast." Front desk clerks very grumpy and unhelpful. NEVER STAY HERE. Overpriced and terrible.

Location is the best attribute!
The location was the best thing about it. The shared bathrooms were very close by. The shower worked well, but it was awkward not having any shelf or place to put clothing or cleansers. It is definitely an older place, but the people working there were very nice.

Had 1 night stay there, reasonably priced for the condition of the hotel, bit dated but close to nightlife

4/10 Fair

If you're elderly or have mobility problems then I wouldn't suggest you book here as rooms are up very steep narrow staircases. The location is brilliant, 5 minutes walk from the main train station and right on the Damrak. Reception and Housekeeping Staff very friendly. Hotel needs serious upgrade - at least my room did. Very disappointing.
