Bring your towels, bare minimum
We stayed there for 2 nights. We were able to do the check in later which was great. The main doors do not close and stay open all day and night long. NO TOWELS, YOU HAVE TO PAY. The room was relatively small but ok... the arr on the wall was questionable. The showers were dirty, hair on the drain from 10 years ago. The kitchen was dirty, no soap, half appliances, but it was big. The living room was nice, more questionable decoration in there. No radiators in the room, no place to dry your staff, limited appliances. Felt alward withe the bathroom/ shower situation... You can not adjust the temp of water in the cubicles, some locks in the showers dont work, cant leave your staff there.

We were lit a bit disappointed. Small room is really small up to the limits. Room was clean and warm. We were surprised that we had to put on duvet cover ourselves. We have left our luggage in the car, there was no space for it. Showers lit a bit narrow with medium water pressure, also we were not able to regulate temp. No towels. Recompensation is a view from the kitchen area. Overal not to good and not to but either, but some attention is needed.
