The hotel rooms used to be judged a bit worn out or old-fashioned, so there's been a total rehauling in Spring 2012. The new rooms are very nice, but... the works are not totally finished yet, or they have been finished recently. As a results, at the time of my visits the rooms had a very disagreeable and strong smell of fresh paint, which made staying and sleeping in the room an alltogether not so pleasant experience.
Apart from that, the hotel is quite nice, with a very good location close to the central station, and the staff very helpful. As soon as the works will be over and the paint totally dry, I highly recommend it. Until then, be careful if you are sensitive to smells.
