    it was a very nice and clean hotel, generally we didn't have any problem

    in the reception there was only one person so he couldn't handle the check-ins and the phones which was ringing. We expected phones calls and noone picked up the phone

    bad smell in bathroom , annoying receptionist.

    I wasn't expecting too much, so Hotel Rex offers the best service for the price you pay. If you are paying 60 euros a night to a hotel right in the center of the city, don't expect it to be luxurious. However, the hotel was clean, the staff was helpful and the quality of the breakfast was over the expectation.

    Some rooms were refurbished and looked cleaner than the other rooms. It would be better if all rooms have same quality and cleanness. And please drop those wall to wall carpets!! They look awful!

    The location is excellent, the staff were mostly friendly and helpful, especially one young lady who was very helpful. The rooms are basic but functional the bathroom was clean and the shower worked well.

    The balconys on the upper floors are very low, be careful with young ones, or if you've been drinking.

    All Staff very polite and helpful, rooms comfortable and clean, excellent breakfast, really central

    It was very central to restaurants and train stations as well as a taxi stand outside the front door which was great. The Breakfast provided had a generous selection available

    Reception is below street level with no lift so lugging heavy bags up and down the stairs (the only access to internal lift) was not easy. I had a single room which was very small.but adequate. The tv was in the wrong place with the light beside the bed weak.

    Liked the buffet breakfast and the daily room service. Also liked the location, friendly hotel staff and the guide given on arrival. I had also lost my credit card and was able to pay cash.

    Disappointed with the location of my room being at the back, so there was no sunshine/natural daylight coming through my window. Great breakfast buffet, but the scrambled eggs was not vegetarian friendly as it was mixed with bacon. Also the hotel had an annoying smell, wasn't foul however. No iron in the room for a 3star hotel but ironing service was available at a fee.

    Excellent location, close to metro and the city bus tour stop. Great for getting around. Also close enough to walk to the major centres.

    It is a very nice hotel in a good situation and with a very good breakfast. I would stay again!

    This is a well located hotel with good rates and excellent overall value.

    This hotel is fine except that it needs a complete make over as the furnishings and decor are showing their age. This will inevitably put up the price. So is you don't mind a slightly worn, fin de siecle fell, carpe diem!

  • Single

    it was clean, staff friendly, breakfast was ok, location wasnt central, and there was plenty of shops nearby.

    didnt like that it didnt have a mini bar or tra/coffee making facilities in room for when you needed a drink during the night, you had to make sure went to shop and got something during day.

    The location was excellent. Comfortable, clean rooms and adequate breakfast. The hotel was exactly as I thought it would be. Good value for money.
