That's what it is. Would say it is cleaner than most. Signage is adequate but be sure to follow signs to authorized taxis. "Vultures" hang outside other exits and are real ripoffs!!! Food selection is good.

The station was easy to navigate with clear signage. Floors are smooth to roll luggage and elevators are available. We called UBER to take us to our hotel and had no problem meeting the car..

We arrived by train so this was not a destination for us. I can see how it would be though. The view is somewhat striking of the city from here and one that will wet your appetite to go explore.

Arrived here on Eurostar from St Pancras, and used the station a couple of times for setting off on day trips. Stunning building which has been sensitively modernised - I like the trees growing inside the building. Several places to grab a coffee before your...More

Modern station with plenty of shops, cafes, fast food places with strongWi-Fi connection. And if your cellphone/tablet/laptop goes off, don`t worry because you have four stationary bikes where you can charge your device just by pedaling :-)
