Great location, very quiet, very close to train station, had nespresso coffee machine and a capsule per day. It's very value for money hotel and the rooms seemed renovated. Also the room had a double bed as we wanted and was very clean. Wish the stuff in reception be more friendly.

Milk and snacks can be bought from the shop... More

This hotel is really good value for budget travellers - the rooms are modern, clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and knowledgable. It is in a beautiful suburb behind the main railway station just minutes on the frequent trams from the city centre - I highly recommend it!
