The hotel is friendly and clean. Rooms are reasonable size. The bathroom was a bit dated but the shower had amazing water pressure. I was given a room facing the front of the hotel and as others have said, the trams do start at around 0530 ish – if you are a light sleeper then make sure you request a room facing the courtyard. Walls are very thin – could hear the couple next door arguing for three days – try not to get a room with a heavy snorer next door.
The restaurant is a separate building in the middle of the courtyard which serves reasonable food. You do need to try to attract the waiters attention as they are rarely in the restaurant and there is no indication that guests have arrived (a bell would be useful above the door). Breakfast however is very limited with some tired meats and cheeses. Coffee and juices taste mass produced and there is very little choice of alternatives. I discovered on the second day that they can cook eggs for special orders but it is not advertised anywhere.
If you do stay, check the price list of the inventory of your room,. It seems that they must have had people stealing everything from a towel to a wardrobe.
Security outside is 24hr but rather grim and makes you feel like you are entering your hotel illegally:-)
Would recommend this for short stays – is local to trams and shops -
