Overall the hotel is good – that is if you can see past its location (part of the hospital complex) and the overall feel of the place, it pretty much feels like a cross between a sanatorium, a hotel and a Ronald Mc Donald house. This means that lots of the hotel guests have either been just released from treatment, are concerned family members of people in treatments, mothers with their newborn and the like. Sometimes there is an odd group of other guests.
It is all very clean with sporadic decorations. My single room was small but with a good bed and shower. Breakfast has a good offering too. Staff is friendly, helpful and speaks good English.
I probably would not reserve this for a nice family trip or with my loved one, but for a quick overnighter during a business trip where you come in late evening and leave early morning again this is probably a good alternative. There is nothing in particular bad or super good, but the whole experience is a little akward.
