    Very, very, very loud people frequent this hotel. Would stay in the halls for hours at night talking, yelling, being drunk and obnoxious. Management would do well to not invite such individuals in the first place, though having someone on site to tell such people to shut up at night would also be sufficient.

    It was a comfy room with all the necessary amenities. Also there was the World Series of Darts Championship on TV.

    Even with nonsmoking room, old tobacco stench lingers on the walls or furniture. Kept window open all the time. Staff working in the bar. No AC.

    When you're looking for a basic hotel with an excellent location in Gryuere area when using public transport to get around, a clean room and a hot shower and not much more, this is it. Quiet court yard side rooms. Late check-out, thank you nice staff.

    - the walls are not soundproof and you hear your neighbors' noises. - the pillows were not comfortable at all, had to remove them in the middle of my sleep due to discomfort - the noise like someone was playing the drums started early morning (5-6 am?) due to the "wake up" of the heating system.

    - The location is easy to find, next to the train station - the paid parking just across the street was available (luckily) - welcoming staff at the reception - affordable price.
