Great place to stay when you are from out of town. i use it for business trips when all you need is a bed and a shower between meetings. Rooms are very quite and the beds are really comfortable. Great fore the solo traveler.

The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and while small, perfectly adequate for a place to sleep each night. The shower wasn't all that great, but at least the water was hot and plentiful. The food in the restaurant downstairs was delicious.

This just pays the first part of your room. You won’t get it back but it comes off the price when you arrive.

Please note that while I can't comment on a shuttle service, the train station is not walking distance (about a 25 min walk) nor is it on an easy bus route. Your best bet is a taxi or Uber.
