I stayed at the Carbon Hotel for one night.
The Carbon Style room was very spacious and the layout was unique compared to other (business) hotels I have stayed at. The dark colors combined with the ambient lightning were very nice. A high-quality flat screen TV and Bose sound dock were nice extras. The airco/heating system was difficult to control and as a result it was really hot in the room in the evening. The thermostat was set to 18 but didn't seem to work properly.
I stayed for business so the nice desk area combined with free and excellent Wi-Fi was definitely a plus.
The only downside of the stay was my breakfast. Buffet choice was limited and the quality was not really up to par. Also during breakfast I got the impression the staff was not too well organized ... and as a result things got kind of hectic and noisy.
The hotel is located just across the railway station and right around the corner of the shopping district. Public parking is available beneath the hotel but be aware it is expensive. I paid 12 EUR for the night.
