We stayed here for one night prior to catching a flight. Very good location right beside the train station in the centre of town. Very pleasant welcome.
We had booked one of the top rooms which was not overly big but for one night, acceptable. I would have to say that I don't particularly wish to have an exercise bike or wall bars in my room!! The room promised bathrobes and slippers which weren't provided. However after speaking to reception, they duly appeared.
Our room was at the front of the hotel and although previous posts have stated that the double glazing kept out the sound of the trams this is not the case.
Breakfast was basic but I refuse to pay extra for eggs when I'm booked on a bed and breakfast basis.
Although acceptable, I can't understand how this hotel is rated so highly on trip advisor
