“Must Love Trains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012 via mobile

We picked this place because Expedia said it was in the "City Center". Well, it's not. Yes, it's reasonably priced, but not worth the time and effort it took getting to the fun part of town. For someone on a backpacking trip, I think it would be fine since they'd be used to trekking about town anyway. But if you are on a short vacation or don't have a lot of time to spend on transit, I'd recommend finding a place closer to the City Center. The other thing was, when we got here, the front door was locked and we had to ring the buzzer for someone to let us in. Luckily the cleaning lady happened to be around so she opened the door. If you happen to come at an inconvenient time (for them), good luck getting in. I would recommend calling ahead to make arrangements, as other advisors have commented.
Our room doesn't seem to have a/c and we don't want to keep the windows open because of the trains, so it's pretty stuffy in the room.
The trains are close but not too bad- few and far between. Of course, I haven't gone to bed yet so...
I don't mean to say only negative things about this place, so here are the good things-
Free laundry facilities! Can't beat that! The instructions are not in English though so good luck with that.
The room is super cute, and has full kitchen amenities. You can make smallish meals if you bring all the right stuff. There is a fridge, oven, stove, microwave, and all the pots/pans/utensils. There's also a DVD player in the room.
Hope this helps!

We had huge problems "checking in" - the apartments aren't manned which we did not realise when booking. We ought to have been emailed a pin code to access the apartment when we booked but did not (and of course did not know it would be necessary). It took at least an hour and numerous expensive frustrating phone calls, where it appeared we were hung up on, to eventually obtain the code. While the apartment itself is well equipped and a good size it is located extremely close to the railway ie right beside it which makes sleeping difficult. Additionally the curtains are too thin to keep out the light, and one window had no curtain. The apartment was clean however, and cheap. Access to the city by tram is convenient but would not stay again.

+ The hotel is cheap
+ No reception, only automatic check-in
+ Free Wi-Fi

- Pillows and beds are very uncomfortable
- Train station and a tram is near hotel and I got an impression, that I slept in a train - VERY, VERY, VERY noisy

I am not sure, that it REALLY worth 3 stars :/

This place is way too far from the city centre! You need to get a train which takes about 15-20 minutes, then a tram which takes another 10-20 minutes - THEN you need to walk 5 minutes... It's probably OK for long term stays but if you're only here for a couple of days STAY ELSEWHERE.

There isn't actually anyone here to take your booking/check you in - it's all done by a machine - so if you don't have a credit card with an IC chip I don't know what you'd do - this annoyed me because I wanted to pay in cash to avoid my bank's ridiculous international processing charges. On the plus side, the rooms are very spacious and clean and contain everything you need for cooking etc. and the laundry facilities are 100% free.

  • Liked — Free good quality internet, free laundry, cleanliness
  • Disliked — Too far away!
