Convenient location to the SBB train station. Reasonable price

The room I was given was right next to the bright red, neon Metropol sign. The blinds did not completely keep the light out of the room. It wasn't bad but slightly annoying. Make sure you request a room away from the sign. There was no ventilation in the room. To get fresh air, you have to open the windows and then it becomes a bit noisy.
