Pros: much cheaper than staying downtown, easy to get to downtown, breakfast included, free stuff (breakfast, internet), modern/seemed recently redone, accross from the tram stop from the airport
Cons: can't think of any
This hotel is located in the same building as 3 other hotel that lines the street where the tram from the airport ends (making it very convenient to get to from the airport). It is also right next to the main train station which has a subway station that will get you right downtown in a matter of minutes. The ground floor has a restaurant and the check in area which looks recently redone. Upon checkin, they gave us a little bag with a map of the town, some snacks and some water. The rooms are clean and big and there are a lot of options on the TV to choose from. Even though the hotel is right next to the train station, it is very quiet in the room at all times. There was free wireless as well, which is always a plus.
Breakfast was included in our rate and it was a solid breakfast. The options weren't endless but there was plenty to choose from. There was even a section of the buffet which featured organic products if that is your thing. The only complaint is that the croissants were always on their last leg when we went down at 10 am.
