“Very basic, good breakfast, WIFI nightmare”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Room are clean and okay, over all the hotel has nothing special. Breakfast is nice and (during Eurosonic) till 11 am. Wifi was really bad in my room though (4th floor), had to log in again every 5 minutes because I kept losing connection.

I stayed for 2 nights on a conference. Initial impression of being a dull building from the outside was soon altered inside.
The reception staff were on the ball. Immediate attention and handing out the keys to the room. Surprisingly the room was large , spacious, without any overcrowding of furniture. The desk was functional, TV was excellent size, wardrobe had all you need
and the bathroom was exceptional large, clean, well kitted out. The room had a green theme and lights were mod cons.
The windows were large and the view from the room was good. Good sleep pattern. When it rained umbrellas were on hand.
Location was walking distance from University, Hospitals, City centre, Cathedral, Theatres.

Really helpful front desk staff and good breakfast. Close to City Center (10 minutes walk away). Hotel still under renovation and you can still smell it on level 6. Wifi is horrible, only 100MB per night.

Most convenient to visit the city by foot or with the public transport .
No inconveniece due tot the clinic opposite the hotel.
Great service as usual in NH hotels.
The city is worthwile visiting with many streets with shops and boutique, different from the usual stores you find in any city.
Also plenty of choice of restaurants at a reasonable prize.

The 'free' WiFi is useless for a smartphone or tablet. To get a reasonable bandwidth you must buy the premium service, renewable daily. Even this is unreliable. Regular business travellers expect reliable, high performance, free Wifi in the room.
An alternative hotel providing that shall get my custom in the future.
Otherwise, this is a comfortable, clean hotel in a good location and is good for business trips.

Everything in the hotel is perfect. Beds, rooms, service etc. The most wonderful thing however is that you can check out late on Sunday's, until 4.30 PM, breakfast possible until 12 noon. No extra costs. We were afraid that the Hospital across might be noisy but it was dead quiet, great!

When expecting norml business hotel quality, this will be ok. Location opposite to big hospital, where you park your car in underground garage.walking distance from city center. Modern lobby/ restaurant, no frills, all ok. Free wifi offered, but slow, not sufficient for pictures/ videos; definitely point for improvement. Standard business hotel rooms, beds ok, standard bathroom, most with shower only, which is fine for me. Breakfast ok, with good coffee machine, nothing extraordinary, but sufficient.
