If you're after 'basic' then this hotel is fine. I have stayed there before, so would be daft going back if it wasn't. Clean and not so far from the tram stop/train station/bus stop, my only problem is the method of payment. I booked for two people for two days. Remembering the last time I stayed (unable to read the German information sheet, I couldn't get into the hotel - so I pressed the emergency button and was given a bit of a glare by the otherwise friendly staff member who attended), I successfully operated the 'pay-first-by-card to get through the door' operating button. The day after, while I was out, my partner was told that I had only paid for me, and also for only one day, so could she cough up the rest. This wasn't necessarily embarrassing for her, but it could have been. More to the point, we have been charged two transaction rates by our respective banks, the second of which should and would have been avoided if money for what I had actually booked had come out of my account in the first place. Sort it out, Etap. Other than that, would I go back? Possibly.
