It’s very basic. Clean and staff nice. But.. next to main train lines so noisy from early. No locks on bathroom or shower which are in main room in family room. No window to open so no fresh air. Good enough location. 5min walk into main station area. Handy for cheap one night stay.

Clean small rooms

Very clean rooms, almost clinical. Be aware that the ensuite is not in a separate bathroom but the shower is a walk in cubicle and the toilet is also just a walk in cubicle. No privacy to get changed when showering so don't book if you plan to share the room and are shy!
