Ok, This is going to be a long review to tackle some issues other reviewers had....
My BF and I stayed here Feb 12th-15th. We initially paid €25 a night for both of us but we asked for the room with the jacuzzi if it was available.(This was an extra €20 a night but still damn cheap!)
They were able to give us room 402 and the room was HUGE!! It was very clean, very plain, just a bed, a desk, 2 chairs, a TV, open wardrobe and luggage holder thingy by the door!! I think there was originally balcony access but the door had been screwed shut.. It had these huge picture windows overlooking the motorway (?) but we didnt notice any noise at all.
The room was warm and comfortable, the bed was comfortable and clean, and the bathroom had the jacuzzi bath, separate glassed in shower stall, loo and sink. The jacuzzi was a fab way to chill at the end of the day, and was large enough for two ;-P
The hotel itself seemed to be OK although we really didn't spend any time in it, only our room. But It looked clean, the staff seemed pleasant enough and there was a lift to the 4th floor. It is approx 5-10 mins walk from the tram stop, and a 3 min walk away is an estate shopping area where we got drinks etc from Lidl and a rather nice kebab on the second night. I didn't notice any funny smells, the cleaner came in and cleaned every day and didn't touch any of our things. Maybe we just struck lucky getting the room we did, so maybe fork out the extra few pound and also request room 402!
Because of previous reviews I did actually go down the stairs one of the days and nosied down the corridors but it all looked (and smelled!) OK!
Overall we had a great stay, we wanted somewhere comfy and clean to sleep and that's what we got.
