As a family with young kids this place was such a relief. Superb location opposite train station, very willing and warm staff, breakfast incl, great supermarket 10 metres away, and the family apartment was brilliant. More roomy than what we were expecting, and even had a kid's corner with play kitchen, toy train tracks, books and other toys. Mezzanine floor was cute, though the ventilation was a bit of a problem in July (hot). Pillows were not the best, but otherwise very comfortable for this price range.
In comparison to places we have stayed in inner city locations in London and Paris this is superb value, and very welcoming. I was so surprised to stay somewhere that exceeded the promises of the website by far. Would very happily return and recommend it (esp the family apartment we stayed in) without hesitation.
