My room was clean and large. View from the room was also nice. The hotel is rather new and modern. I would have no major problem getting back to the hotel, but it would not be my first choice. I paid more than 180 euro per nigh for one person, no breakfast (bad value for money in my opinion).
I particularly disliked the waiting time for the elevator in the morning (and from the warning signs, breakfast is not better). This is not acceptable in a business hotel.
Internet was generally rather slow. I was not impressed with the restaurant (though I might simply have been unlike with the dish I ordered).
Regarding location...it depends on what you need/like. OK is you have business in the area, but as a tourist I would probably go for something in a different area. Public transportation in the area is however excellent and taxis are not so expensive.
Some of my colleagues (5) had problems with getting a room and sent to a different, rather distant, hotel for one night. They reported this was handled well, but still it is an hassle that one would like to avoid.
