Great facilities - the shared bathrooms were nice and clean and roomy - could have done with a separate toilet but there was only one time when I couldn't use it and just used one on a different floor. Towels are provided in the rooms, also hairdryer in the bathroom and shower soaps provided and hand soap in the bedrooms....

Clean rooms, decent breakfast. Some of the staff could be more friendly. We had a car so didn't use any public transport but it is a little way out from the city centre. There are however supermarkets and restaurants near by. Overall great value for money in an expensive country!

Trying to be objective.... this is a hostel that offers breakfast and then feels it can call itself a hotel. Rubbish hotel. Not even a good hostel, I've stayed in much better ones in UK e.g. Hatters which had Tv and drinks in the room and ensuite. Our room at Capital had an old CRT in it which meant there...

Our agent "weekender breaks" also know as "viva-holidays" booked this for us and although I cannot recommend them at all, the capital inn has all you need. The hotel was very clean and warm. The room and bed was comfortable with a good tv and towels supplied. There is access to a kitchen where you can prepare your own meals...

Not a city centre hotel, but you are not paying for one. Busses every half hour into the centre (ten minute ride) or a very enjoyable 30 minute walk. Our room (312) was very clean, serviced daily and even had a mezzanine floor so my friend and i didn't have to share. Breakfast was simple, yet ample. Cereals, fruits, meat...

The photos are so unlike what we experienced there. We were a group of 10 friends, not looking for a 5-star hotel, but expecting some kind of decency. There can be high doubts on whether the bed sheets had ever been cleaned, the bathrooms had clearly been forgotten for a while by the cleaning lady and the staff was as...

Trust me, stay away from this place. Located away from the centre (it's almost 30 minutes by walk), the place is a total disaster. Water smells like rotten eggs, showers won't work properly (the water is either extremely cold or burning hot) and the rooms are filthy and stinky. I would definetely give -5 stars if that would be possible....

For the price I found the hotel excellent, have read some bad comments but not sure why. The room was adequet, clean, warm, tv worked fine. Location is great. The buffet breakfast was included in the room rate, very good and well presented. Lots of parking in well lighted area

Stay away from here, "hell is empty and all the devils are here". It's an insult to hygiene, the water smells like rotten eggs, the showers do not work well and you either get burnt or freeze. The employers are far from useful and the place in general is a mess.
