This hotel is a bit of a mixture. I've stayed more than once thanks to an employer having a deal there. The rooms seem to all be pretty small, with bathrooms squeezed in. They have showers right up against the toilet, and no bath. There is a hair dryer though, and fixed large bottles of soap.
The beds are okay. The TVs have terrible reception but a fair mix of channels. The bedside lights are flimsy and seem invariably broken. I've had stained bedcovers and carpets each time and once found a hair in the bed.
I'd have expected air conditioning at this price, but there are just central heating radiators and - in some rooms - floor-standing fans.
There are tea and coffee facilities in the room. Breakfast is distinctly average.
The internet didn't work on my device the first time I went, and was in reception only. Recently, it's not only worked, it's both fast, and available in at least some rooms - certainly in the basement. Don't be put off by the basement rooms, by the way - they're fine and so low that the windows actually still manage to offer decent privacy.
The luggage room is free, but rarely locked or monitored properly. Helpfully though, they kindly accelerated cleaning for me once, to help me check in early after an early morning flight arrival.
Laundry is quite pricey, and if they call you a taxi it'll be without any special arrangement or price deal. The tram stop is a block up the road.
It's a great location for the zoo and the botanical gardens. Perhaps just a little too far for very comfortable exploring if you're there for the city centre, but great if you've business on the east side. It's a nice neighbourhood.
