We stayed for 3 nights and it is just a skip away from the train station. We got a room that is facing the Chapel Bridge and the view in the day or night was just great. It was interesting to stay in a hotel that does not have a proper reception. You actually checked in at the pub counter. Luckily we did that in the late morning. Can't imagine if you have to do that at night when there are so many people. Room is a bit small but for the price and location, can't complain. We expected it to be noisy at night but surprising, we only heard drunk singing one of the nights...but we were so tired that it did not bothered us at all. Free wifi is a plus but no breakfast. There is a supermarket at the train station that opens till 10 pm. On Sat mornings, the market is smacked right at the entrance so at dawn, you can hear them setting up their stalls. Small TV in room that has CNN. Other than that, get used to watching movies in German language which we did....with Raiders of the Lost Ark. Service is a little lacking....they did not replace our towels one night and the other, they forgot the shower gel. But we just had to go down to the pub and let the waiter know, and he got it sent to our rooms very quickly. Again, if you are choosing this hotel for its service, then you will be disappointed. But if it is for the location and price...then it provides that.
