We stayed here for 3 nights and we picked it for the location, very close to the main train station, in a nice quiet location. That's all you get pretty much. The décor is quite quirky, we stayed in 208 right at the top. We booked a double room and got 2 single beds pushed together. That wouldn't have been a problem but when the beds move all the time because they're on wheels and you end up with a gap between them it's not that good. I do understand that it makes sense to be able to accommodate guests that ask for a twin or a double room, but in that room there's not enough space to make it a twin because as soon as you move one of the beds you can't get into the shower room because the beds blocks the door. As soon as you get into our room there is a flight of stairs and a light at the top that wasn't working making it a bit difficult to get in. We told the staff the next day but it wasn't fixed in the 3 days we were there, so we had to leave a lamp on all the time, not very cost efficient.
It's not cheap, so make sure you check the prices on their website, they're lower than on other websites.
