We booked this place because of the many many good reviews we found - but we found a run down, not really clean place with a staff that does not really care. You might get a room that smells of smoke, with worn out beds - we could move to a room that did not smell of smoke, and the bed was rock hard - fine with us, but you might not like it.
Check out the reviews and you notice, that the good positve ones are very very short, and the bad ones are more detailed - draw your own conclusion.
We liked the area, as it was close to two subway lines, restaurants, bakeries, a supermarket and a shopping street.
But avoid this Hotel - it must have been good back in the 80'ies.
