This was my first time to stay in an Apart Hotel. For those not familiar, these are more short term apartment rentals, with virtually no hotel amenities. The building doesn't look like a hotel from the outside, and has very inconspicuous signage. The front desk has limited hours for service, and you have to pre-arrange for check in from 7:30 - 9:00 PM for a fee (50 Euro). If you arrive after that you are out of luck and can't check in and will have to find a room somewhere else for the night. When I checked in I was told the apartment would be serviced every three days, but it was only serviced on the fifth day after I arrived, and then only the trash was taken out and the towels in the bathroom replaced, but not the bed linens. On the plus side the clerk in reception spoke excellent English and was very helpful in explaining things, and getting me a taxi when I needed one. The apartment had a a full kitchen and kitchen-ware. The building is old, but the inside is completely remodeled in a modern style, and very clean. There was a nice bathroom, but the hot water ran out a couple of days after only a brief shower. The bed was firm but comfortable enough. The neighborhood is kind of sketchy, and people congregate out in the streets at cafes and bars and make a LOT of noise until 1 AM and later. The hotel is a five minute walk from a metro station and a slight longer walk from the main railroad station. I don't recommend the restaurants and bars immediately nearby.
