Not where I would have chosen but at the very low price of 18 euros it provided the essentials. A good size room with beds that reminded me of my student days in the 70s with TV to match. Adequate breakfast, all in the price. Noisy young school children running and jumping late in the evening was the major annoyance....

I paid about €22/night for a single room with en suite toilet and breakfast. A very good deal but don't expect everything to be as good as Hilton! Rooms came with a desk, refrigerator, TV, wardrobe and heater. There's only a shower in the toilet, no bathtub. Simple, generally clean and comfortable but as some people have mentioned, some areas...

I was here for one night only, noticed nothing extreeme. Cheap hotel with cheap interior and service, but it does help to spend the night. Defenatly nothing too positive, but when the young man was changed by the young lady, service quality become better.

Rooms are simplistic but do the job. Was disappointed we had a twin room and they didnt have any double rooms, even though they weren't full. Receptionists were brilliant, helpful and attentive at all times.

It's a bus drive from the center, but I wouldn't recommend it to anybody. There was piles of dust on the floor, the bedsheets was not clean and the electricity didn't work. The breakfast was clearly too old and just terrible. But the worst part was definitely the service. They were just extremely rude.

Satisfied to get my own room, but that's about it. The room had good size, but was stained and the bed was terrible. Bathroom had shards from the tiles and you could hear everything that goes on in the rooms around and outside. BUT it is cheap and if you don't have high standards it will be fine.

This hotel has such serious health and safety issues it would be closed down if in the UK. Apart from the few staff working there who were helpful and friendly there is nothing to recommend it. Pay a little extra and find somewhere nicer and closer to town. Examples: Shower cubicle covered in mould, nasty little beds with very cheap...

We went on a deal, so we were not sure of the accommodation. When we arrived we first saw the stairs, carpet was coming loose and missing in places, apart from what this looks like, it is also extremely dangerous. The bedroom had a dirty old carpet, old worn, stained mattresses on the beds with the springs literally poking through,...

“If you want a quiet stay, avoid weekends which is when this hotel gets busy. The weekend we were there we had a coach load of ice hockey players from Minsk (Dynamo), Belarus! They were very quiet though, maybe because they lost to the home team, Riga!”
