My daughter and I stayed at this hotel for five nights in August. We decided to request an upgrade because after taking into account the cost of wifi (should be free) and breakfast, it wasn't that much more expensive to stay in a club room. The room were given was large by European standards. It was in the other wing (900 numbered rooms) which required walking a bit of a distance within the hotel, but that was not a problem for us. Our airconditioning didn't work very well however. When we brought this to the attention of the help desk, they fixed the issue within a few hours. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was a bit small but fine.
The continental breakfast was sufficient, nothing more, although the coffee machine made the best cappucino I have tasted from an automated unit.
The best part about the hotel was their staff and the location. The staff was friendly and very responsive to questions. The hotel is located a few blocks from Central Station, which was convenient not only because it was near the trains but because most of the trams stop there. We were able to travel everywhere by tram and avoid taxis.
I don't think that I would rate this a 5 star hotel, but it is a solid 4 all around. The service deserves a 5 star rating.
