Pros: clean, friendly family–run hotel, free wlan throughout the hotel (even in our room which was in a corner = bonus!), well organized, very helpful staff – even suggested some excursions when it was obvious we didn´t have anything planned that day, pricing is very fair, breakfast was tasty and plentiful, free parking, neighborhood feels safe – we even walked the streets after midnight without thinking twice, there´s a bar on the ground floor for in case you want a night cap, safe – we didn´t think twice about leaving things in our room.
Cons: its about a 10 minute tram ride from the city center – this isn´t all bad though, as the three different tram lines run frequently and until pretty late. Finding tickets for the trams on a Sunday was difficult though, and this has nothing to to with the hotel, just my lack of foresight.
Other than that I can´t really think of any cons.
Overview: It´s not a 5 start luxury hotel, but we weren´t expecting one either. If you´re looking for somewhere safe, clean, with good breakfast, free wlan, and a friendly staff, then check this place out.
