Stayed here for a week in June. The room was very comfortable and clean, and had a good view of the city and the park just outside. There is a minimal kitchen which I did not use, but can come in handy for some. The location is very good, in a lively neighbourhood and a few minutes walk up the hill from the metro.
The biggest problem is the network connection, which is among the worst I've seen. Frequently the WiFi routers will just not accept connections. Once connected, whether by WiFi or a cable, you need to enter randomly generated user id and password from reception, and some of the time the system complains of "too many connections". If you got past all this, you get a very slow connection, with some services blocked (e.g. ssh). The staff's only excuse was that they were full and demand was high. A hotel with 88 rooms can set up an internet connection that can accommodate 200 guests without crashing.
In the summer there can be noise from activities in the park, but only during the day. There is small gym, with the key in reception. Reasonable breakfast with pastries, cereal, fruit, juice and coffee. Reception is formally always open, but when I arrived I had to wait 15 minutes for anyone to show up.
