An hotel well situated, some of the rooms refurbished but not the cheap ones. Shame for the not free car park and wifi not in the room, friendly staff and security guard at the door for Saturday night crazy people.

Great location from the station, literally across the street, excellent attention to requests from the management and staff plus top breakfast to start the day off. Will be back often. Thank you Anna & staff..

The room was OK but to have full on club music through the early hours when you're on the 3rd floor! Too much, too loud and not appreciated on a midweek business trip. I checked in late at about midnight after a long drive so, as with most business travellers I didn't want much except for a decent bed, shower...

Mixed bag with this one really. Arrived late on a Friday evening me the Mrs and the three kids. We booked into a room with two double beds, we had to supply our own pop up bed or would have had to book two rooms. We were fine with this and being a family of 5 often have to do...

We booked to stay overnight as attending New Years Eve Ball, room was small but clean facing the Central Station itself. Fantastic night we both enjoyed the evening, food was a wee bit too much as it was a five course meal, but excellent and plenty of it. Entertainment was brilliant, the staff were friendly and very helpful. Thank you...

One night stay here to visit Christmas markets. The hotel is directly opposite the exit/entrance of the train station which was perfect. It means you can check-in and be straight out to make the most of the city (and shuffle quickly back to the station when you're hung over the next morning). Our room was at the front of the...
