The room I stayed in was basic but clean. The bed was comfortable and there was a good selection of pillows from which to choose from.
My only bugbears about the hotel are that the walls are very thin and that the door didn't feel overly secure.
I was located at the junction of two pathways and a stairwell. This meant there was a lot of foot traffic (with the associated noise) and strong lighting shining through the curtains throughout the night. Also I could readily hear my neighbours packing for their flight the next day.
The door to the room also didn't feel secure. It could have been that the walls were only couple of cm thick and thus psychologically I thought the door could be kicked in easily.
This hotel is close to the airport but not the city centre, so it's a good stopover destination if you've got an early morning flight.
