I have just spent three nights at this hotel. It is in a very good location and very quiet. The room we had on the second floor was pristinely clean and extremely comfortable. I personally don't understand the need for speakers in the bathroom, I prefer quiet. The staff were helpful at all times trying to see to any concerns. Breakfast was absolutely fine with very good coffee. It is a clean, light, comfortable environment.
One thing you need to be aware of is that apart from breakfast and the minibar in the room no other food or drink is available on site.
The local travel card is very useful and also gets you to the airport in just 12 minutes from the main station.
I would recommend this hotel.
