We stayed here 2 nights cause it was relatively cheap and look nice and clean from photos.
On arrival at 12noon, and check-in was 2pm. We were told our room was ready but we had to pay 10euro extra to get to our rooms. We asked if they could hold luggage, they told us yes, but luggage was just in the front foyer, the door was usually open and often the person at the front desk would not be there, so definitely no secure luggage hold area. As we were heading out for the day we decided to pay the 10 euro extra to make sure our bags were no stolen.
Our room was tiny, but this is not uncommon in europe. However, the beds and bathrooms were very clean and well maintained.
The worse part of our stay was the noise. There were very thin walls, where you could hear your neighbours conversation. There was also no sound proofing from outside. We had a front room where you could hear all the trucks delivering to neighbouring businesses(which seems very often), all the people walking pass, all through the night, we had a terrible sleep. And unfortuantely my husband was sick in bed all day (no fault of the hotel) but it meant he got no rest at all.
The location was very convenient. Maybe if we stayed in a back room the noise levels could have been better, I'm not sure?
