          This is probably one of the worst budget places I have ever stayed in. The rooms are dirty, the place has a stench because of the thick carpets that are never cleaned. Our room was cleaned once in the 3 days we stayed there. The worst part of this place are the people working there. It is owned by Indians who are very unfriendly and in fact just straight up rude. They went to the extent of intentionally not informing us when the last person of the group arrived, and therefore he was forced to stay at another hotel till he could find a way to get a hold of us. This place is just bad news. During check out, the lady at the desk was extremely rude. Also beware they charge 5% for using your credit card, which I thought was ridiculous. They also were insistent that we pay for our stay in advance despite having a credit card on hold.

          The location is the best for city walking tours. The price was cost effective

          The very steep and dangerous stairs.

        • Group of friends
          5.8

          Location was good and breakfast, while quirky, was very good.

          Access was a bit dire (steep steps) and the bass from the club near by kept myself and my pregnant wifr awake from 2am through to 4am.

        • Group of friends

          Excellent location, easy to find & fairly helpful staff.

          Photos are of a different hotel, i have stayed in nicer hostels. Breakfast in room was meagre. Room was very dirty. Would not recommend. Gay bar next door very noisy till late but hey its Dam.

        • Group of friends

          The hotel rooms are very small and a joke basically for the price. The apartments are more spacious, but aren't what they're advertised as. We stayed in a 4 person 2 bedroom apartment which was basically a studio with a double bed in the living area and two single beds pushed together in the kitchen. Overall the location was great and the apartment was clean, but just not worth the price. Staff were ok but don't expect service with a smile.

        • Group of friends

          The free wifi connection although it didn't reach the room - hotel location - peaceful room (last floor)

          -stressing personnel - only one key delivered for a room for 4 - dirty room -

          it was covenient for the center of the city and reasonably priced.

        • Group of friends

          Good location at good price

          It was cold and wet, heating was not working when there was +10- 12c outside

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          We stayed in apartment 6. It was comfortable and good value. Cheap and cheerful. It was a quiet location, regarding outside noise. I would come back to this apartment.

          The stairs could use soundproofing!

          Location

          Covered in mosquito bites and room very hot but i like this hotel for its location

        • Single
          6.2

          very clean (esp. the bathroom), nice breakfast, lots of space to work (nice desk), free wifi

          staircase is way too steep, decoration in the room, view (at the back of the hotel), exhaust pipe just near window causing smells

          location

          The hotel is the narrow black building to the left of the vertical sign in the advertised photograph.The building in the middle of the photo is a theatre There is a disco bar at ground level – noise until 3.45am. Heating did not work. Electric power did not work. Alternative accommodation minimum standard and damaged by a previous angry occupant. Staff helpful except one who was belligerent. Overcharged.

        • Group of friends
          3.2

          The only thing that was good about it was how I felt prior to arriving there.

          The staff are useless, the apartments we stayed in were in a building down the road, we only had one key between 4 per apartment, we had to pay a €30 deposit for the keys, we were charged another 10% on top of the room cost for being 'foreign', the apartments were disgusting and in desperate need of decorating. Basically the whole place is dogshit.

        • Family with children
          5.4

          Location was good.

          Nice lobby in the hotel is misleading. The apartments are in a run down building a 100 metres away. Lots of stairs to get you to a dirty suite with mildew in the shower. We booked a two bedroom for five people but the bedroom had a window in the door leading to the 'great room's and the door wouldn't close. The great room slept three okay but it wasn't a 'bedroom'. Keep looking!

        • Single

          The location near Rembrant's plein

          The towels were forgotten the 1st day in the bathroom.
