The hotel is situated about 20 minutes walk from the railway station, 15 minutes from the cathedral and five minutes from the start of the central shopping area.
Reception was friendly and efficient, with a cheerful greeting whenever one passed and helpful advice. There is a sitting area, and a free internet computer for guests.
The hotel is sited at a major road junction on one of the ring roads. I had asked for a room at the back on a high floor. I was given one on the 4th floor at the back, with a good view to the trees of a park. There was no noise (even though it was next to the lift). Actually, the reception and breakfast area also had no real external noise, so I imagine the front facing rooms would also be quiet if you keep the windows shut.
I had single use of a small double (various sizes/ grades of room available, mine was "Comfort class"). The room was large enough for me, but I could see that it would have felt cluttered with two. Pleasant decor. TV with BBC, CNN in English and a range of music radio stations including classical. Fridge/minibar, safe. Adequate lighting. Comfortable bed. Clean.
The shower-room was small. Effective shower. Soap and shower gel/shampoo only. Decent towels. Clean
Breakfast was a good buffet selection of high quality fruit, cereals, joghurt, bread, cheese, jams &c. A little hot food. Squeeze your own orange juice. Pleasant rooms next to or in front of reception, with some tables with windows onto the street.
Negatives? Weak lukewarm coffee.
