The mattress was very uncomfortable. The room was smaller than it seemed on photos and not perfectly clean. The breakfast was okay. Tha staff was a little cold and they didn't even ask us if we enjoyed our stay, they made us pay and that's it. The bes thing about this hotel is the location: near the subway and near many interesting places.

I like the location and the fact that they have a lift, but I really dislike the carpet on the floor.
