In all my years of travel, I have never seen a bathroom smaller than the one in my room at this hotel. The sink/toliet area is quite literally as small as the bathrooms on today's commercial jetliners. So small, that there literally is no space to put a toliet paper holder at the usual level. Instead, the holder is located on a shelf located behind the toliet at the four-foot level!
But, enough about toliets. We arrived at about 11:00am and were told that are room wasn't ready. Fair enough. To store our luggage, we had to muscle our luggage down a winding staircase to the basement, which had lockers for rent for 4 euros. Not exactly customer friendly.
The room was clean, the WIFI worked, and the staff were okay, but the room was very small and had a cheap feel to it--lots of plastic everywhere.
Didn't eat breakfast there (it was extra).
The location is good for restaurants, but despite it's name the hotel is not right next to the train station. If you have lots of bags, it is a healthy walk from the station.
All in all, an experience I won't repeat.
