8/10 Very good

Good stay for one night. Room was petite but cozy. I was traveling solo and felt safe 100% of the time. Great location as well!

Disrepair and no staff
There are no staff at this hotel, checkin is on an ipad. That might be ok, but leaving a phone number for questions when travelers like us have no phone service is questionable. I did not see a single person who worked there the whole time, it was a little creepy tbh. The room was clean but several things were broken, 1) the doorstop was just an exposed nail that would have really caused damage if stepped on 2) the handle on the shower was entirely missing 3) the door closure of the bathroom was missing and left a hole in the door looking straight through. Really underwhelming. I was thankful the windows were sound proof since this was next to the station. The location was the best part of the hotel, near great restaurants and the train station.

Miserably Hot
Great location but the rooms were miserably hot at night. The AC does not cool at all, stayed above 24c every night. Blankets were very thick, more meant for winter time. I did not sleep well both nights I stayed there, I even changed rooms, that did not help. No staff in the evening or mornings. Self check in.

Give this place a miss
No information about how to check in, in spite of it being self-check in. This was complicated by my booking not being in the hotels system. Thankfully wait staff for the bar told me we could get desk assistance at a hotel 100 metres away. None of this was outlined in the check in details for the booking. Cups/glasses were not replaced when used T bags not replenished Towels not always replenished and dirty wash cloth left in the shower Hair dryer didn’t work. When took this to staff on the desk, I was told the plug wasn’t suitable for local sockets and that it looked in bad repair, asking if it was my dryer. The irony is, that this is what I was trying to tell the desk clerk. When I made the point that I had received no apology for this, the desk clerk replied in a very sarcastic way “I am so sorry”. He obviously wasn’t. No reception/assistance on site so we had to go to another hotel over the street for any help even though it was pouring down one time All this would have been bearable if the staff on reception had been professional and helpful - one young woman was very helpful however two men who worked at reception at the (apparently linked) hotel across the street were rude and unhelpful when we asked for assistance (see above). I have never given a review but feel so strongly about this experience that I feel I need to warn others it was an awful hotel and I definitely would not recommend it.
