The hotels of the Indigo chain usually stand for pragmatic, stylish and affordable rooms. This hotel offers rooms which are more like shoe boxes - once you managed to open all your luggage there is little space left to move and the room is completely cluttered. Beds are comfy but for some the nearby train line ( that certainly affects all hotels in this area) may be a major disturbance. We had a twin room that "looked" out on a wall a meter away - felt more like a garage. The bathroom takes the concept of compactness to a new level, one that is only good for a night in transit but never for an extended stay. There is no lift to the 2nd floor so be prepared to carry your bags.
This hotel is only acceptable because it is new and clean, yet all fixtures already show signs of wear and use, indicating how cheaply they were made. We stayed on reward points of the Priority Club, thus cannot complain about the price, but if I had to pay around 200USD or more for this room I would have been seriously offended. Definitely not a place to come back to, even though the front desk staff are friendly and helpful.
