This hotel was extremely conveniently located only 5 minute walk to the train station and 10 minute walk to the downtown (landmarks) area. It was a little hard to find since there are hotels everywhere on the street and almost every door is either a hotel or a restaurant so keep an eye out on your first visit, after that it's pretty easy to find. The hotel was very clean and we got breakfast in bed which was a nice touch even though the breakfast wasn't anything special, it's nice to have some croissants, oj and coffee right after you wake up without having to go anywhere. Check in and check out were extremely easy and there is also free wifi internet, but where our room was located we weren't able to take advantage of it unless we stood outside in the corridor. The person at the front desk was very nice and even let us leave our luggage their on our departure day since we had an afternoon train, so we were able to explore the city some more without having to carry our suitcases around. I was expecting much worse for the price we paid per night, but I was pleasantly surprised and there isn't a single negative thing I can say for this hotel besides maybe the elevator was too old and only one person with a suitcase fit in there and when people used it sometimes they wouldn't close the door so you can't call the elevator, but that had nothing to do with the hotel management. Please keep in mind this is a budget hotel, not a four star hotel with a spa. With budget hotels you get what you pay for and with this hotel, you get more since it's a great location, the service is pretty good and the rooms were pretty clean.
