I got in late with a prepaid room but the clerk at the desk could find no mention of it. I was then forced to pay for the room. The funny thing was, parking was also prepaid and yet she could see that it had been prepaid. I got to the room and the electrics didn't work.. at all! Back down, assigned a new room. The rooms are very very basic. In fact everything was very basic. If you don't mind the hostel like lifestyle you'll do ok.
As for the area, close to the train station. It wasn't noisy but there isn't much about. If you're up for sightseeing I'd look for something closer to the old city.
Back to the problems with billing. In the morning I was told even the parking wasn't prepaid and when I bitterly complained that this happened just recently at another Ibis (what is wrong with their systems) the parking fee got waved.. even though it was prepaid. I finally was able to get the charge for the room reversed but of course I have to eat all the fees involved. Not a nice experience.
Did I mention the Wifi was horrible.
