2/10 Poor

Worst hotel on earth
It's one of the worst hotels ever and we don't recommend anybody to book there. We stayed there only 1 night it is very dirty and they didn't clean under the beds where we found a lot of dust and old face masks. The room and the toilet smells horrible and the humidity is very bad there specially in the toilet and since my boyfriend has breathing problem the humidity and the mold in the toilet caused him a serious lung problem and we are stuck with the doctors now. Please please better to sleep in the street than sleeping there.

8/10 Very good

Good place to stay
Basic but clean and quiet; friendly staff! Excellent location for public transport and food (carrefour supermarket, kebab shops). Downside: no elevator but narrow and steep staircase - not a deal breaker though.

The worst hotel, i hae stay in, cannot be more dirty as it is, even when you tell the staff that the room is super dirty, they just tell you, this what we have, we could give you a worst room, it feels very unsafe, I will never stay there again, I lost one nigth, because we couldnt stay anymore.

4/10 Fair

Very shabby hotel, and the price reflects it. Room was small and needed to be updated. Most of the furniture was worn to the point where it was falling apart. My room's bathroom apparently had a hole in it so when I had a shower it would leak into the room below. I was woken up two nights in a row by hotel staff to tell me about the problem, but they didn't actually do anything to solve it. I

This place was horrible! The window was broken, and when I tried to close it I found blood stains on the curtains. The bedding was stained with cigarette burns in them. And at night, I found rats in my room! Customer service was non-existent. The man at the front desk laughed when I told him. And after going to my room, finding the rat, then killing it, he tried to lie to me and say there was nothing. I would never recommend anyone stay here. You might as well sleep on the street.

AVOID - Not sure why this app can work with them
PLEASE AVOID! This is the worst hotel I have ever been, the main entrance is extremely narrow, actually the stairs are so close one each other. We asked for a room change and both were horrible, dirty, old, a totally mess. Im not sure why can advertise this disgusting hotel. Totally dissatisfied with the hotel and the app. The breakfast was not even available. We want our refund. ¡POR FAVOR EVITE! Este es el peor hotel en el que he estado, la entrada principal es extremadamente estrecha, de hecho, las escaleras están muy cerca una de la otra. Pedimos un cambio de habitación y ambos eran horribles, sucios, viejos, un desastre total. No estoy seguro de por qué puede anunciar este increíble y repugnante hotel. Totalmente insatisfecho con el hotel y la aplicación.

A bit different from the photo. Especially the bathroom - very old very dirty. However with this location - closed to train station, subway station, and cheap hotel - it is acceptable

Stay somewhere else
In fairness, the location was pretty convenient. That said, I’d probably say this is the worst hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Every surface in my room was stained, be it the bedsheets, curtains or walls. The room also smelled absolutely horrific and the toilet barely flushed. There were also bare wires on the floor which seemed a little dangerous. Probably best to avoid this place
