We stayed here one night (Saturday) and were very happy with the location to downtown and the shopping. The downside was the vicinity to a bar that was open until 5AM; we'd flown in from the West Coast of the US and hence our sleep pattern was already odd. If you're looking for a sound sleep, ask for a room that won't have a window on the street.
I would stay here again due to its vicinity to everything. The bathroom was really cool in that it was mostly concrete. I was fascinated with how well concrete works in a bathroom. There was a mirror at head level in the shower, which I found nice to see how I washed my hair. The shower had a glass panel that covered 3/4 of the shower, but the last quarter was open. So if you are a sloppy shower, the floor outside the shower will get wet; but that's where the concrete makes it ok. The toiletries provided were in bottles, but I don't remember them being amazing as I'd brought my own and wasn't paying much attention to them so can't comment on them. The bathroom was on the other side of the closet, which had a glass wall that was translucent so you could make out shapes. This would be fine for couples or if you're alone, but I was traveling with a male friend so it just meant you didn't look in that direction when someone was in the bathroom.
The room itself was small, but no smaller than a typical European sized room in a major city.
The breakfast was good and included in our booking. WiFi was free and actually the same for all the CenterHotels in the city so if you came within any of their hotels, you got WiFi again which was convenient.
Side note: we had a rental car and stayed here on a Saturday night. The parking is free after some time in the afternoon and free all day Sunday, so street parking was not a problem for us. I'm not sure what the week would be like if you had a rental.
