Good 7.8 From 64 reviews

Good 6.0
It does not really look like in the pictures. Rooms and lobby are renovated and are nice and clean. But the inside of the building is missing bits and pieces here and there that makes it look and feel less than what it could be, such as the inside of the elevator missing some stuff. Breakfast was quite unimpressive and service was slow in general, both restaurant and reception. The surrounding areas are not nice to look at during daytime and quite intimidating after dark but nothing happened.

All fine
There was a shower issue but it was fixed promptly. Breakfast/bar are basic but adequate. Parking was on-street but in a square with good security and extremely convenient being right at the hotel entrance.
