Central location, friendliness of staff making suggestions for dining and how to get to various stores.

Not a criticism but a suggestion on directions to a foreigner on how to use the shower.

Staff is polite but it was not able to solve the internet problem. The Hotel room is well equipped

I had no wireless access for my entire stay, i.e. 3 days. For the first day, I was told there was some issue and it would be fixed the day after. It was supposedly fixed the day after, but still did not have access to internet. I think this is partly due to the location of the room. While the room is well equipped, the form of the mattress bring you to the center of the bed and you end up sleeping on the central wood board.

Nice newly renovated room, free DVD player, Flatscreen etc. - great place to stay. Large room!

Tram passes right in front of the building - which you can hear. Didn't annoy me too much though (Soundproofing is ok).
