Good place near city center
Room 615, had a computer screen for a tv, no balcony, power sockets a bit far. Those are the only negatives. Room is big, comfortable bed, functioning air condo, breakfast in the morning.

Habitación grande, pero un poco descuidado
El cuarto era bastante grande, una buena televisión y sala de estar en el mismo cuarto. La cama grande, limpia y muy cómoda, pero el baño era bastante descuidado. El hotel se encuentra bien ubicado a pocos metros de la estación de metro.

Good 6.0
The shower was not separated from the other part of the bathroom, so it was almost impossible to take a shower without get the whole room wet. After you take a shower, the water remains on the floor for hours. And in the other hands, the whole bathroom looks like that is more then 20 years old, and the whole building held mark of the "good old" socialism style. Only the hall and the bedroom was new. Mattresses were quite hard, but it's depends on your preferences whether is good or not. But the staff was nice, and helpful. And the hotel is in a quite great location.
