The hotel met my needs of proximity to the train station as well as my office and the tram. Breakfast was good quality and plenty, service was outstanding. Room was cleaned and had all the items I needed to make my stay and work very pleasant. The reception gave me a coffee to go on my last day since it was too early for breakfast. I will definitely return to this hotel

I wish the restaurant would have an omelet/egg station since breakfast is my main meal and not always have time to eat lunch while in business. That would be a great addition.

The room was very clean and everything worked well. The wifi always worked. The bathroom had plenty of space. The staff was very professional.

The only recommendation I have is to provide a guide for the channels on the television.
