We stayed for three nights in this hotel in May. It took us about 20min to walk there from the train station, though we could have also taken the metro (a stop is about 50 metres from the hotel). The hotel consists of two connected buildings, which can be confusing at first. Staff was very friendly and capable, the room and bathroom much bigger than we are used to in hotels these days. Rooms were reasonably clean (could have been bit better) and maybe the interior is not to everybody's liking (English country style, well, what do you expect in a hotel called Ascot?) Breakfast was plenty and OK (continental style) and room prizes very competetive. Only possible letdown is that the hotel is located at a busy four lane street. When booking a hotel in a city, you should expect some noise, but it might be worth pointing out that this is no hotel located in a quiet side street. There are several night clubs around and next to the hotel. There will be noise during the night. When we were there, there was a 24hrs party going on in the building next to the hotel, with the doors frequently open. This didn't bother us too much (again, expect some noise in a city hotel), but could be an issue for light sleepers.
(BTW, someone complained here about heating issues. We did not experience anything of that sort. On the contrary, for the first time we had a hotel room that was not terribly overheated!!!) There is aircon in the rooms and the heating worked very well when we tested it.)
