Hotel Dorothy might be one of the cheapest offers in town but definitely not worth it!
The rooms are very small, many of them are not completely dry which means that you find mold in several places. We stayed 3 nights, after the first two nights I was coughing so much because of the mold, that I asked to switch rooms. The next one was better but still didn´t feel healthy. The staff is rather unfriendly and unfortunately the don´t know anything about the city and the touristic offers. They wouldn´t even be able to recommend a restaurant. The first room also didn´t have hot water. Other guests told me their rooms also didn´t have that.
Positive is that they have a rather big kitchen-well equipped, Internet access working in the public area and in some of the rooms. Each rooms has a small nightstand with a drawer that you can lock.
All in all: I would definitely NOT go there again. Of course it´s cheap – but therefore it also doesn´t offer anything.
