The hotel would be ideally suited to a business traveler but it is not so good for a vacation. It just had that general feel about it and the staff were not overly helpful at reception or the bar.
The room was good though, roasting hot, comfy beds and decent shower/bathroom.
The location depending what you are looking for is either good/bad. It is excellent transport wise with the train station and bus station as well as tram stops right on the doorstep. It is a bit of a walk to the old town though and can take between 15-30 minutes depending on what route you take. If this is all you want to see it might be better staying closer. For us it was ok.
Don't be put off by people saying there are drunks and junkies outside as they are few and far between and totally harmless and will not bother you at all. I have seen far worse in other cities.
If I had to stay at this hotel again I would but I would maybe try somewhere closer to old town. If you need to be close to the train station and bus station you will not get better than this.
Wifi was free and could sometimes be used in the rooms depending on signal. It was good at the bar and reception.
