Stayed here whilst on a recent business trip. Was a bit of a flying visit, but this hotel was close to where I needed to be. Taxi from the airport to here was just under 25 Euro's, took about 35mins. The hotel itself is located right next to the main train stations, with the tram line running right outside, so great location for getting around. Its about 2km from the city centre.
I booked a standard double room. Check in was quick and easy. Staff very friendly. The room itself was clean, neat and tidy. Good size. The room had TV, coffee and tea making, iron and ironing board, and a safe. This room did not have a mini bar.
You will need your key card to access the hallways from the elevators. See my attached picture. Room service menu looks nice, reasonably priced, but is limited. Not unusual for this type of hotel, and not intended to be a criticism.
Wifi is free. And as with all free wifi, was hit and miss on connection speed. When I first got to the room, speeds were slow, I was able to browse just about. That evening it speeded up. I would say overall good for a free service.
There are two places to eat, and also a lounge bar. I didn't have the breakfast, but did have some lunch which was very nice indeed. Pricing was 5.50 for a soup. 6.50 for a toastie, 3.40 for a cappuccino.
All in all a very nice hotel, one which I would stay in again.
