Stayed here overnight due to business. Room was okay, but very small. Since I booked a superior room (don't know if I got one), I still wonder what people do in the "normal" rooms. But the bed was nice and wide.
The shower was not to my satisfaction, due to the showerhead (fixed to the wall) I had to stand outside the shower curtain and wait for a little while before the water got warm. Stupid people in the 80's who installed such showers.
I am not sure if it would be necessary for me (or the hotel) to be afraid to use the elevator, but when I see it is from 1987 and sounds like it's going to break, I would definitely do something about it. I guess I had a room in the old part of the hotel (A-wing).
The breakfast was served in the restaurant area down by the lobby. It was a Monday morning at 0730. There was not much light, so I had trouble seeing everything. Breakfast was ordinary, especially the warm stuff (only tomatoes - why do people eat them for breakfast, well nobody did, bacon and eggs) did not look tempting.
I saw only one guy cleaning and organizing, he was so busy he couldn't even say hello when you bumped into him.
Well, all in all a hotel with fair prices and great location. Not a place to spend your honeymoon, but perfect for business people or people who need cheap accommodation close to the railway.
