Fading Glory
I had a spacious room on the floor. Comfortable and quiet with a good view. Price (Agoda online) was good. Breakfast was varied, in pleasant settings. Staff in all functions were friendly and helpful. The hotel is rather old, and not very well maintained. A lamp in my room was broken. There were stains on the bathroom wall, and lots of old dust under the bed, and dust in the corners of the room. Plugs to basin and bathtub did not work well. Warm water was not really hot. Gym was small, old, and not well equipped. Location is neither central nor pleasant. One has to cross motorways and walk 15 minutes to get to shops and eateries in the outskirts of city center.
