Nice staff, good common areas, good breakfast. Room with carpet all over the floor - not my favourite, but ok and I guess typical British. The shower was totally fucked up an almost impossible to use - hope that applies just to our room.

No llegamos a hospedarnos, les solicitamos una devolución íntegra de la reserva (que no nos dieron). Dos meses antes reservamos una habitación privada para dos, y una vez allí, después de pagar íntegra la estancia (2 días) nos dicen que no tienen nuestra reserva, ni habitaciones privadas. No comentaron nada hasta que pagamos, después nos comunicaron que no disponían de nuestra habitación. En fín, nada nada recomendable, y muy poca profesionalidad.

Die Nähe zur U-Bahn- Station und auch zum Stadtzentrum. Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft des Personals. Negativ war, dass wir in einer Nacht durch eine französische Gruppe kaum schlafen konnten, die heben laut und mit viel Alkohol bis 4 in drr Früh gefeiert.

Please try to provide Double bedded Rooms. We were 6 persons and the youngest was 59 and oldest 74. It becomes difficult to climb on the upper bunk. And it is difficult to sit on the lower Bed.
