From the first floor on the smoke became awful in the common areas, with people openly smoking in the hallways. The room was not much better, but there had been an effort to air it out. Similarly it was very noisy, but not from outside, from within the hotel. Even without the smoking, the room was still disappointing, in particular the bathroom was awful, it is a prebuilt unit retrofitted into the room with almost no light, a shower platform that you can't use standing amd a curtain that encloses the toilet and goes around the outside of the shower base - making it useless.
The location was good, near to the train station but not too close, the bus to the airport stops right outside, and it was easy walking to the city center and most attractions. Also the staff were friendly and tried to be helpful.
