The hotel is located close to the center

The Wifi was very slow and had to be renewed every day for every device with tiny papers from the reception. Room was very bare bones and the bed was actually 2 beds that move apart very easy.

I like the more personal atmosphere in the hotel. Rooms are quite stylish and have huge glass fronts.

Cannot open the window for the noise in the night. (Next to the railroads) Normal rooms ( not the suite) have a bright neon light with the hotel name in front. The elevator is a bottleneck. Mornings and evenings.

The hotel was new and fairly clean, breakfast was good. Location was good as well as it is just in the center of the city.

I don't like the lift which has 2 doors, you have to hold the heavy door to get your luggage in which can be tedious if you have heavy luggage. Besides, the room is just so small it has hardly any space for you to lay your luggage to unpack or pack. This hotel is probably designed for traveller with only one suitcase only.
