Positive Reviews

Location couldn't be more convenient

It is fair to say this hotel really couldn't be any closer to the city's main train station than it is. A great many guests loved the convenience of this as, in addition to being right door to inter-city train services, it brings the entire metro system within easy reach. The district's myriad shops, restaurants and heritage sights are just  a stroll away too.

Receptionists are pleasant and professional

Numerous visitors have been suitably impressed by this hotel's genial yet highly professional team of receptionists. Being able to converse in multiple languages was also very much appreciated.

Surprisingly quiet at night

If you're concerned that staying right next door to a busy metropolitan rail terminus will result in you being forced to listen to shunting locomotives throughout the night then don't worry. The vast majority of guests who stayed in this comprehensively soundproofed property said they weren't disturbed by any unwelcome noise at all.

Negative Reviews

Some rooms are a little small

Very few guests who stayed in standard guest rooms were enamoured by the overall lack of space.  Having no clothes drawers or designated luggage area were the chief gripes.

Breakfast offers little variety

Whilst most visitors appreciated the breakfast offerings, many lamented that it was the same every day. Happily, there are plenty of eateries nearby to provide some variation.

Wi-Fi can be unstable in some accommodations

Many guests were less-than-impressed by the wireless Internet access in their room. Some visitors even reported that they had to go out into the corridor to log-on at times.
