The bed and rooms were clean and comfortable. I really loved the location in the park and it was easy to get to the station and city centre either walking or by tram. There was lots of nice bars and restaurants nearby. There was hot water and coffee available 24hrs. There was lots of communal areas to relax. Overall I was very impressed.

Wir haben ein ruhiges Zimmer verlangt und erhalten, mit toller Aussicht in den Park. Das Zimmer ist zweckmässig und gut eingerichtet. Die Verkehrsverbindungen in die Stadt sind sehr gut.
