The hotel has a great location for the city center. You can exit the rear doors and walk right into the train station. Its a small boutique type hotel. It can be hard to find your way around as it is a bit dark and narrow with multiple dark doors so you mistake someone's room for the exit to the lift. Waiting for the lift can also be annoying if you are in a hurry. The room was a fair size and the shower in the room is nice but the tub is a bit small so you don't have a lot of space to have the shower. Their towels must be very new as they leave fluff all over you. The staff were very friendly but you waited a long time to get their attention as there is only one of each, so check in and check out take ages. I thought the bed was comfortable but the room is too dark. Overall, its an average hotel.
