Avoid at all cost. It’s simply a scam. Well, the price is low. So, you may expect some drawback. But in this hotel the list of problems are too long. The hotel is overall dirty, the room has mattresses that is probably never been washed, all sorts the insects/ bugs shares the room with you, wifi don’t work, noisy place, rooms are not soundproof, careless management, won’t help you with anything. The hotel would have had 0 star review. Only reason it is not is probably because they scammed the reviews. I myself recognize one person with 5 stars who was in the reception.

Great beautiful old school hotel, complete with grated elevator door you have to open yourself. They don't make 'em like this anymore! Easy check in, polite friendly staff, even got the bartender to serve a couple of beers for the room after closing. Simple rooms, nothing fancy, but the building is full of history and charm. Great price (make reservations directly on their site , cheaper than any of the apps), great location.
