auberge peu cher pour mini budget

Cons: la literie! elle est catastrophique
Location: elle est à 20min de tout
casiers à bagage qui nous plume en un rien de temps, wifi qui fonctionne très mal. Jolie chambre avec wc et douche séparées mais la literie est en très mauvais état.

Bon placement, propreté décevante

L'hôtel est bien placé, à 15 min environ à pied du centre de la ville, bien entouré niveau commerces, restaurants etc. et à 5 min de l'arrêt de tram (York Place). En revanche, propreté laissant à désirer, nos draps étaient tâchés (alors qu'ils était censés être propres), la housse était plein de cheveux ne nous appartenant pas (donc je suppose qu'elle n'avait pas été lavée), et nous avons eu le malheur de déplacer un peu un meuble pour trouver un nid de poussière derrière. A part cela confort ok, mais il fait froid dans la chambre même avec le chauffage.
