First the good news. The staff are very friendly and eager to help, and the lobby is fairly comfortable if you need to hang out for a bit. There’s a machine with cold sodas, candy etc. The location is great, in a quiet, residential neighborhood just a few tram or bus stops from the center of town. I was there for a few weeks taking some courses.
Now for the bad. The place is kind of a dump. I’ve seen worse, to be sure, but the owners and/or managers really have a lot nerve selling this place.
The carpeting in the hallways is filthy and full of stains both large and small. The room furniture would make IKEA look luxurious, and though my studio apartment wasn’t dirty, it wasn’t exactly clean either, not as it should have been, as if it had been given s surface cleaning only. I do have to say the bed was clean and pretty comfortable.
I had what they call a studio apartment for myself. Now granted, this is the only apartment I saw in the place, but there was barely enough room to move around, let alone be comfortable. They sell this place for two people and I just can’t imagine more than one person in there. Bad use of existing space too. Lighting was very good, and outlets were abundant, but the WI-FI was awful. Instructions for the appliances would have been helpful, but the staff helped when I had problems.
I wanted to be able to do some meal preparation for myself as I was there for a few weeks, so that’s why I chose a self-catering place and didn’t expect full hotel services. If you expect them, go elsewhere. Come to think of it, go elsewhere anyway.
Breakfast, which I only had a couple of times, and which costs 8.50 Euros was a typical buffet and adequate.
Note to whomever actually owns this chain: this place needs a serious upgrade. It’s dirty, shoddily equipped and furnished, and not at all attractive or pleasing. If I hadn’t been booked in here as part of my program of classes I would have left after one night. And I intend to inform the lodging director of the school, with whom you do a lot of business, of my experience.
