Nice hotel just 5 minutes walk from the train station and the university. The old town is further, but you can go there with a bus which stops next to the hotel, and it is free with the free transportation ticket you get in the hotel. The room is large and comfortable: nice TV, desk, floor heating in the shower...

I am trying to find something wrong with this hotel and I can't. It is of course not a 5-star hotel with golden stuff everywhere but if you don't want to spend millions, a good choice. Perhaps the chairs in the bedrooms could be more comfortable; like frequently, and strangely enough, design is viewed as more important than comfort. But...

This is a modern hotel in the university area on a quiet street. The rooms are simple and modern with no frills, small, but the sleep quality was good. There was also a simple breakfast included, and the hotel was good value for money. Recommended for short visits.

Hotel close to the city center, few stops by bus 12. Clean rooms and large enough to stay comfortable for a couple of nights. Polite staff and nice buffet for breakfast. We asked for a vegan breakfast and were kindly provided with soy milk and explained which product from the buffet was supposed to be vegan or not. Appreciated stay.

A relatively small hotel in a quiet and authentic area. There are a few nice restaurants in the neighbourhood, otherwise only 10 minutes away from the central station and the old town. The room was clean with good in-room facilities.

The double room in a separate building from the main had a very large space with a desk and sofa. However, the sound isolation was not good, so that all neighbour's noise (shower, moving sofa/chair) could be heard. The WiFi's speed was really fast.

Stayed there for just one night, so the VERY small room (essentially just a bed and a bathroom) was good enough. Clean, free wifi, good breakfast buffet. Not fit if it rains and you want to stay in the room, just too small. Note: During weekends reception is not always manned (they will put your room key on the reception...

The location is great - less than 5 mins from the university, 7 mins to the station and the downtown area and the hotel gives you a bus pass for the time you are there in case you don't want to walk.

“We had a room facing the middle of a quad. There was some construction in there and they started early by 7am. We were up anyway so it did not bother us. Might be best to get a room facing the street.”
