The hotel is a 10 or 20 minute walk from downtown. This hotel seems to be just a bit outside the "nice" area of town (shopping malls, universities, museums). Instead, the hotel was in an area that was more run-down. It did NOT seem unsafe to us.
The wifi is free. There was an option to pay for higher speed. Free speed limited to 60kb/sec download speed, and it might have been slower than that at times. Youtube type streaming videos had to load for awhile before they would start playing. Wifi wasn't working one night out of 7; it started working again after a couple hours.
The room does NOT smell strongly nor smell bad; this is the most important thing for me. There was a slight smell of cleaning products, but it was not strong or objectionable.
Includes small fridge and microwave, in-room coffee maker and ironing board.
There was some road noise at night, but probably a normal amount of noise for anyone accustomed to living downtown. Cars and trucks driving by could be heard clearly. There wasn't any honking of horns, except for one night when a car alarm went off several times. Also, neighbors heaters made noise as though it was windy outside.
The refrigerator seemed noisy, but that might be normal, I'm not used to having a fridge running near where I'm trying to sleep. Also this won't be a problem if you aren't using the fridge.
In our room, when we turned on the heater or air conditioner, it blew behind the curtains and made the curtains billow out into the room. It would have been annoying, but we didn't use the heater or air conditioner much at all. In february, we didn't need any climate control. Maybe we could have placed heavy things on the window sill to keep the curtain against the window.
