6/10 Good

No place to store luggage after check-out, it is a major inconvenience

Two star property. Only 1 light in room. Sparse furnishings. Crappy TV and cable service. Dorm room comfort.

The room overall was not bad. But check in was not on site. And the room we chose did not have an on-site bathroom or shower. This was not noted anywhere on the booking. It was located in the hallway. We had to upgrade our room and pay more to have a bathroom and shower.

It has the feel of a 1980s hotel that just needed the chalk outline on the floor. Just that perfect The Doors we’re here vibe pulsing from its brickwork walls!!

Beware. I thought I booked a normal hotel room. I didn’t realize it was a dorm style room and the bathroom and shower are shared for the whole floor. I learned later my room is called European Efficiency and I wouldn’t have booked this option if it were more obvious. The hotel has normal hotel rooms also and I wish I booked one of those.
