Arriving very late we got a warm welcome and an upgrade to a suite. The beds were comfortable and whilst certain elements of the hotel are dated, it was clean and had good facilities. The swimming pool was good - a good temperature despite the minus 15 degrees outside and there was a sauna too.
The location isn't bad as it is right next door to the hilton which means taxis are very easy to get.
We had lunch at the hotel's restaurant and this was very reasonable.
Overall, a very good value stay, with well appointed, comfortable and clean rooms.
