Hotel is clean, convenient location but dreadful breakfast and very unfriendly staff which put me off trying the actual restaurant at night.

The area around the hotel has prostitutes, drug dealers and lots of people with addiction problems loitering about the area at night. Thi

We stayed at this hotel for a few nights. It's perfectly located in the city centre, with the metro station just in front of the hotel door. One stop away from train and bus station and walking distance from all attractions. The room was nice. Only negative point, the breakfast.

Hello, How can I get from airport to hotel by public transport? What quality is breakfest? (buffet?)
By transport you can get metro to Lavov most. Breakfast is a menu choice and if you want something more you have to pay. The service isn't good, for example I have to wait 20 minutes for a tea which is never arrived.
