My husband and I have stayed there in the beginning of march, payed only 20 some dollars for a night. Great bargain, clean and modern rooms. The hotel's location is not one of the best but there are so many other factors that made me give it 5 stars:
Large shopping mall right across the street, just take an overpass, no need to cross the street. In the mall you may want to take advantage of the post office - to send a card, t-mobile store - to purchase unlocked phone. We had to do it because our us phones were locked so new sim card would not work. We have purchased a cheap phone and a sim card and were able to call through entire Europe without problems. We will keep this phone for our next European vacation.
Make sure to ask at the front desk for a list of main attractions tram routs. Very handy, saved us a lot of time. This list also posted inside the elevator. Front desk also sells very reasonably priced tram tickets.
We had our rental car parked outside (parking is free) and rode a tram instead; parking in the city is a nightmare and unnecessary stress. Negative about parking: not safe, car may be broken into; don't leave your luggage there, we have seen some broken glass on the pavement.
Breakfast buffet has a decent selection, price reasonable
McDonalds is in the same building, i can't say I would recommend their food to anybody (not their fan) but their coffee was something i was looking forward to every morning :-).
The connection was ok
Front desk will also book an excursion for you, bus will pick you up at the hotel
All things considered, this I would come back without hesitation.
