    very nice view from the 15th floor

    There was nothing to like at this hotel, staff was not helpful at all, bathroom was old and dirty and Saturday early morning was very noisy like they work on refurbishment.

    It meets all my requirments, and at the Casino you feel welcome.

    Empty mini bar and the toilet inside looks dark

  • Older travelers

    Only the price could be a reason to book a room there.

    The hotel is dark, very, very outdated and has uninterested personell. The breakfast buffet is poor and low quality. The advertised piano bar and nightclub that should be in the hotel are closed, so the only bar left is the lobby bar. Curtains in the room felt of, the bathroom got floded after every shower. Air conditioner makes a lot of noice but doesn't cool much. The hotel doesn't deserve any star from the stars it has. Best thing would be to tear the whole place down and build something new. Hotel should only be advertised on booking,com as a very, very low budget hotel or taken of,

    Crowded, especially the lobby. They should divert some crowd to the coffee shop to start with.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The hotel casino was excellent. Free drinks and snacks whilst playing. You can make £8 last for hours in there as the minimum bet is so small.

    Only used hotel as B&B. The hotel itself was great value but the breakfast was awful so used the food hall just down the road in the shopping mall. Mcd's Kentucky, Subway etc

    Proximity to City and shops

    Hotel is in desperate need of a re-furb in the public areas... and breakfast served in a conference room? come-on...

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    Good location in the city, Servis ok, The room old facion but ok, the hotel was old but ok, Rodina is 4 star Hotel but is the cheapest 4 star Hotel. What you pay is what you get. The room was very hot even it was snowing out side. I din't tray the breakfast, couldn't whake up in the morning!

    Everything was Normal!

    Location

    It is stuck in a time warp! Facilities need major upgrade. Some work was being done in the foyer while we were there, but during daylight, business hours which inconvenienced guests - should have been done after hours.
