A nice clean hotel with all the amenities required--free wifi, mini bar, bathroom accessories, and nicely decorated. We found the rooms to be warm and the air condition did not have the strength to cool the rooms down, especially at night. It appeared that only the fan worked and at times warm air was blowing out. We turned off the... More

However, Tram 92 (Ma Campagne stop) is 5-10 minutes walk down the street from the hotel, thus making all tourist sites / other tram line transfers extremely accessible (i.e., Royal Square about 20 minutes tram ride). The hotel is located in what appears to be a... More

A nice , simple hotel, 3 star, but cleaner than many 4 star hotels. Very friendly and customer oriented staff! A quite location, so not a lot of disturbance of traffic (you can sleep with windows open). Little bit remote from centre, but public transportation in proximity

I stayed here for four nights and was given a well appointed room on the 5th floor. It does get hot quickly if the air conditioning is off. However, I found that it was up to the task of cooling the room down when on. The room was not large, but most of the fittings appeared to be new and... More

The hotel is very good for a business or tourism stay. The twin room was good, being clean, well organised and thoughtfully supplied with toiletries, comb, magnifying mirror and good lighting in the bathroom etc. The breakfast was good although differed from cooked options to just a continental choice on different days. Free wifi is provided but is a bit... More
