    I found the bathroom unreasonably small and there was a constant smell in the bathroom. I could not see anything to hang the towels on, there were no compartments in the shower to put my own shampoo, cream etc. The breakfast was too expensive compared to its quality,

    Very close to the train station and to the Technical University. There are very nice restaurants within a walking distance. The Internet quality was very good, one of the best among the hotels I stayed ever. The people were very helpful and friendly.

    The main reason for booking this hotel was the sound proofing of the rooms. Well, this was absolutely not the case. I could here the television in another room, the neighbors on all sides, the street noise etc. In fact, I could hardly sleep at all and a good night sleep is the most important to me when booking a hotel.

    Staff was very good, location is convenient between the train station and the city center.

    The hotel is renovated so you get a much better room compared to similar hotels nearby in the same price range. The room was clean. The location is good if you want to be close to train station but not so good if you are looking for a view or to be closer to the center. The breakfast was a standard french breakfast not something fancy but not bad.

    The bathrooms are awful. The tiles are dated with missing grout. Holes in the wall from of towel rails since removed. There was no shower door orcurtain so the water went everywhere creating quite a mess. I didn't like the suspended ceiling either. It made the room look cheap even though otherwise it was quite nice.

    Toilet was small, badly equipped (no Toilet brush), shower sewage needs reparation. Very small elevator, couldn't fit my suitcase. Hall between rooms was stinking on pets (or pet fecals). In any case, it wasn't desasteros buy I wouldn't stay there again.

    Location. Reception guy was polite and helpful.

    Shower had no curtain so the floor got wet. The lift is small, only holds two people. Lights in the stair well only came on when you got to the top so sometimes it was dark when using the stairs.

    Good value for money. The rooms were cleaned every day. The location is close to the trams but in a quite street. For a short stay it was fine Free wifi was good to have also
