This hotel might have been ok in the 1970s but now it just looks tired. The staff are friendly and the room was cleaned well and there is a safe in the room. Good location is just about their best feature. On the other hand, the room was tiny, incredibly hot and noisy. The door leading to the annex requires the muscles of a body builder to open and it closes so sharply that it almost hits you on the butt. Although the cleaners are good, maintenance isn't great. No plug in the basin, the shower drain cover comes off during showers, horrible shower curtain that sticks to you, shower so close to the loo that the loo gets wet every time you shower. Lots of noise late at night and v early in the mornings.
The worst insult of all was the rubber sheet on the bed. I sweated through the first few nights before I realised why. The rooms are stifling and you can't open the window more than 6 inches. This was not a comfortable stay for me and I do not plan to go back.
The wireless was just frustrating. It has no password, which makes it distinctly dodgy. Every time you use it you have to check a box to agree to terms that are displayed only in German. It refused to let me connect to my VPN. Unacceptable in 2014. When I did use it in desperation it would slow down and stop working intermittently. Finally, the key has a huge key ring on it and you are told to take it with you when you go out. Doesn't fit into pockets very easily.
I travel on business and I just don't need to have these kinds of hassles.
