This is a Trusted Review. Why?
It's a very old hotel with an entrance in the middle of a cafe terrace. You have to go in with a suitcase stared by the people who are eanting or having a chat. I had requested an early check-in via e-mail because my plane arrived at 8:00 in the morning. The front lady kicked me out and told me to come back at 3:00. I lost the first day in Europe with fatigue from a long flight and time diffrence. I have traveld a lot for over 30 years and this is the frist hotel where I couldn't take a rest and a shower when I ariive. The front was occupied mainly the same lady except late at night and the weekend. The were mostly very unfriendly. The only positive aspect of the hotel is its location.
