Huge rooms
We got a huge room with separate living and sleeping areas. And the biggest balcony i have seen on a hotel room, must be almost 30 sqm. Wifi worked great and staff was friendly. Very easy to go downtown by foot, bus or tram.

Okay value
The hotel is an okay value. The staff is nice and helpful. It’s an older hotel that is kept clean. There is a bedroom separate from the entry area with bathroom on the opposite side of the bedroom. The bed is comfortable. The Electric plugs are not in convenient areas and only a few of them. I was on the first floor and had lots of traffic noise. I’ve learned to bring ear plugs on trips. The hotel is kinda close to the train station and only okay in a convenient area for site seeing. I have nothing bad to say about this location, but I probably will not stay here again.
