Ideally situated for train and tram, good value for money.
As with everyone, we can only speak about our own experience of our stay in our room at the time of year we went. We stayed for a week in mid-October, booked as part of a package but upgraded to a superior room, which included a safe at no extra charge. We didn't use or need the air con, but it was provided.
One very important plus - fast and free wi-fi with good signal strength in our room. Other hotels please note!! One of our smartphones always logged on immediately upon returning to the hotel, the other one was a little more troublesome, but that was probably down to the operating system of the phone. We still managed to connect, but had to do so manually each time.
Not the most salubrious area and not a 5* hotel, but for friendliness of staff and value for money, we couldn't fault it. Location was perfect for our purposes - 4 minutes stroll to the train station, two minutes walk to the tram stop. Trams are very frequent - if you see one about to leave, don't rush. There will be another along before you know it.
Breakfast was (I think) from 7.30-10am and the gentleman in charge always greeted us with a smile and was very efficient. The selection didn't vary a great deal from day-to-day but was a good standard of buffet with plenty to choose from. Fresh fruit, cereal, scrambled or boiled eggs (I think you could request an alternative, but we didn't feel the need), lovely bread, ham, cheeses, salami, tomatoes, cucumber, yoghurt, toast, croissants, chocolate and currant pastries, fresh coffee and tea.... the list goes on.
A typical city hotel, not bags of space but sufficient for our needs although I do wonder whether a standard room might be a little cramped.
Just one small problem and one minor irritation. We encountered a smell in our room when we arrived. We found almost immediately upon lifting the decorative cover plate on the shower waste, that the inner plastic that formed the trap had not been inserted correctly, thereby preventing a proper seal. This may have been a one-off, or may account for the problem that others have encountered. The management will no doubt have ensured by now that the cleaners are aware (we did mention it at the front desk) but if anyone else has a similar problem, it would certainly be worth checking. If Trip Advisor will allow it, I will attach a photograph,
The other thing was that there were no TV channels in English, not even a news channel. Not a major problem for us as we don't go on holiday to watch TV, but worth noting.
Overall, we feel we made a good choice and would be happy to return in the future - which I may well do in 2018 when I hope to watch some fast cars drive around a street circuit that happens to be situated no more than a 30 minute train ride away.... less
