Fantastic selection on the breakfast buffet. Free wireless internet access.

Room had clearly had smokers staying in it in the past, despite asking for a non-smoking room. The smell of cigarettes was quite unpleasant.

Not far from the train station and to Tram lines in a very quiet neighbourhood - no bars or clubs anywhere near the hotel.

I just thought the room was so small. It was not uncomfortable but it wasn't at all 'comfortable' either. A bed, a thin table with a TV on it, a tall wardrobe and ... it just felt like a youth hostel or something, not a €60 room. I stayed there on a Sunday night so it was very quiet but as soon as somebody walked up the stairs, I could hear every footstep. I may well have been the only guest in a single room so they seemed to have decided to give me the room other guests might not accept. Which was nice of them.
