Well before we got there we were all warned that this place was the "pits" and bottom of the pile.
I do not think that this hotel is on the "tourist trail". It was bigger then I expected.
Now I always have an open mind when I get to a hotel. And it was no where near as bad as we were told.
Check in for our group was a little bit slow but we got there. The reception area was OK.
I forget the room that I had but it was not to bad. It was basic but everything that you need for a one stay was there. As usual we start with the bed. A double and not bad at all. I had a good nights kip. as with most hotels there was or rather is a longish table / work area on the wall opposite the bed. A good size which was good. A small TV was above this but no channels in English. There is a fridge - working. A kettle also provided although it did not want to boil completely meaning that I had to use my own one. A couple of chairs and a small table as well. A good sized wardrobe. The bathroom was as expected. The shower was quite big and it was a good one. Obviously a toilet and a wash basin. One or two toiletries provided but nothing out of the ordinary. Then for a hotel of this class you would not expect anything more.
The room was clean. Also it was a smoking room. And power points in the right places.
the restaurant is referred to as a coffee shop. The service was very very slow and totally disorganized. I waited for 50 minutes for one of my courses. Never did get the second course. They just don't seem to be able to deal with a small group of about 14 people all at once. And they ran out of beer!! The food was OK though.
So for a one star or may be just maybe 2 star it was all right.
