The first thing of note is that the service there goes the extra mile. When I arrived, they offered free drinks down stairs to help get settled in.
There is also nice water in the room. There is free WIFI and they offer every assistance you could ask for (even gave a free ticket for taking the bus or tram for a day).
The location is nice and is only 1 stop on the bus away from the Central Station (or could probably walk it in about 10 minutes). Bus stop literally goes in front of the hotel and starts from right in front of the station.
The beds are very comfortable and the pillows some of the most comfortable I've slept with.
Overall I'd recommend it, and compared to the price of other nearby hotels seems a bargain (although it's not an inexpensive hotel, comparatively to other nearby hotels is priced well)
