Negative points: when we arrived an other guest let us into the hotel because nobody was at the reception. We had to ring the bell a couple of times for about 20 minutes when one of the cleaner came to the desk and checked us in and gave the room key without any instructions (zero English language). Secondly, the all building was extremely noisy inside and outside as well. We heard when someone the next room was flushing the toilet, or the bell of the entrance during the night, walking up and down on stairs and shut the doors. Positive side is the all building is very clean, friendly and cosy. I gave higher points just because the high quality of cleanliness.
