The breakfast was ok.
No elevators, and the building is old and squeaky, very small, not enough showers, internet was slow, construction on building during stay
1. At breakfast, the man was very angry.
The room is very clean and comfortable...although the bathroom was the shared facility, the cleanness was beyond my expectation...the hotel is located in the Greektown, pubic transit is accessible within walking distance...the hotel staffs were nice, friendly and helpful...all in all it was very good value for money...
The building has several stories and does not have a lift. So if you have a lot of bags, it could be quite some exercise taking them up to your room.
Very nice free breakfast
It was noisy, but on informing the desk they took care of it.
the location, friendly staff and breakfast!!
bathrooms were shared and needed more hot water and a fix on the door hardware.
Location near downtown and cta, room and bathroom cleaness.
Hotel don't have lift. The climbing at 3rd floor after travel from Europe with 15 kg luggage only for full fit PEOPLE.The recception desk's worker was not interested how guest reach her/his room.
Close to bus and train
surprised by linen fee ($3) and key deposit ($10)
The sheets were clean and nice.
We were not aware that the hotel was a hostel. Bathroom facilities down the hall. Room was bare. We had a room on the third floor with no elevator service. My husband had a soft cast on his foot and needed to walk with a cane. No staff to help us with luggage.
This hotel's ocation is it's best advanatage.
This is ok if you aren't too fussy and can go with the flow. It's a bed for the night and is warm but that's about it. The big plus is the common area - free internet and big plasma screen TV.
You have to go into a resteraunt and ask for the owner to come down which can take some time and isn't ideal if you've been traveling for a while. They had no record of my booking and made me feel like they were put out to have me there. It seems they are still doing building work in the halls, there are no hair dryers and the toilet cubicles are tiny.
