I stayed here for the night while traveling for work. The hotel is nice and the themed rooms give a little excitement to your stay. I would say that it is a little over priced for what it is. The rooms are comfortable and warm (I could control my own heating) and the bathroom was clean and had a great shower. They also offer free wi-fi in the lobby.
The hotel is easy to get to from the train station and only a few minutes walk to lots of restaurants and the main shopping center. The only thing that put me off was the smell in the lobby. I'm not sure if they had issues with some pipes but it made downstairs smell of sewage. Luckily this didn't rise to the rooms.
Overall, a good hotel which I will visit again. The staff were friendly and helpful.
