We weren't able to check in until 3pm, however they offered the use of their storage room so we could go and explore without our luggage. The receptionist was friendly enough and provided us with a map and tram information.
Our room was on the top floor and the steps were quite steep and narrow and probably wouldn't suit you if you were unfit (or lazy). The room itself was quite basic and the en suite could do with some updating (the shower tray looks well-worn and not very enticing), however the bed was extremely comfortable.
The dining area is clean and pleasant, and for breakfast they offer a selection of breads, meats, cheese, cereal, fruit and hard boiled eggs. There was also coffee and juice.
The location is great. There is a huge supermarket underneath the hotel for any supplies you may need, and the tram stop is just outside the door.
My ONLY gripe was that they took away our dirty towels and didn't replace them, so on our last morning we couldn't get showered. When I mentioned it to the receptionist all I got was a shrug of the shoulders. Other than that I was generally happy with this no frills hotel.
