The location is good, offers parking lots too.( parking is not free of charge, but try to find a free parking place , safe and clean nearby) furniture is old , the bath is...

I was traveling with a small baby therefore I kindly asked for a room that would fit our needs. What I've got was a terrible room in the BASEMENT with a smell You could not bare! It wasn't similar to the ones presented on photos. We have decided that it is better not to wash jugging from the looks of...

Older hotel, but pretty good value. Close to the main part of the city and plenty of bars and restaurant about. Be aware they do charge for parking though it did not say this on the website when I booked.

I booked this hotel online through "seadmitemascotas.com" which is a Spanish website that allows you to book hotels that accept dogs. As this hotel didn't have a weight restriction on animals (my dog is a 50+ pound greyhound), we decided to stay here. After reading the comments below I wonder if we all stayed in the same location... Ok, it's...

Hotel is dated and shabby, yet seemed clean enough. Was gorgeous in it's day probably, but has since declined to a 'faded lady'. Room smelled musty/unused, but improved once we opened a window and let it air out for a few minutes. Major selling point was that it is cheap. Within walking distance to the river. Not the best neighborhood,...

I would put this hotel into the back packer bracket. Beds are clean, hotel is dated and shabby in places. breakfast was good and staff are really nice. Not a great part of town but the price is right at 44 euros.

We like to visit value for money hotels and have found many little gems but the glitter has long left the crown here. We arrived at 12 midday to be told we couldn't register until after 2pm because the cleaner was still in the room. We walked around the square to see what was available for lunch, but didn't feel...

We got a room in the basement, with little window with view to the sidewalk. The bed was very uncomfortable and made squiky noises. Our bathroom had very old appliances and sometimes pipes made strange noises. Breakfast was very poor. The old man at the reception was speaking many languages fluently but we had an impression like he was the...

The hotel is located in a very old building with unpleasant odour of used stuff. The room was dirty, noisy and very cold. It had cracked washbasin, extremely uncomfortable bed, there was not a single plug socket and even no hairdryer.

This was the worst hotel I ever visited. Even though the road outside of the hotel was not very big, the noise in the hotel room was so loud. We had the room just at the entrance and therefore we also had noice from all people coming back in the night. It felt as if we had the cars and...

“Pay more to get a room on the floors above ground level. The lower level floor (which is the cheapest) has noise from the street,”
