Smallest hotel room I've ever stayed in!

We booked this hotel due to price and location. We wanted to be close to most things (or at least the subway/metro), but didn't want to pay the crazy prices of some hotels in the more touristy areas. To be honest, the hotel is fine for a solo traveler or someone with little to no luggage. Our room was the smallest hotel room I've ever stayed in - I knew it would be small, but I think it was a surprise how claustrophobic I felt in it once we arrived. Check-in was smooth and we were able to walk to a nearby restaurant for dinner after a long travel day.
The room itself was clean, but storage space is non-existant. We had 2 large suitcases and 2 large backpacks (for camera equipment) so we had to stack our suitcases on the one stand the room had and get all our items out the night before. There is no storage space or counter in the bathroom. There is a tiny little shelf to hold a few items or one small toiletry bag. The shower drain didn't drain properly, so after a 5-10 minute shower, the water was filling up the bottom. Due to this, the shower always smelled like stale/standing water. The towel rack (which is in the shower and looks like it should heat towels) was rusted in some areas.
Bed was a little on the hard side and pillows weren't very comfortable. AC was decent, but could have run colder.
The hotel isn't close to much, you do have to walk about 7 minutes (or more depending on how fast you walk) to the closest area for restaurants/gelato/groceries. It's about the same walk to get to the metro/subway station which we took a few times. less
