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.

2/10 Poor

No people present. We almost spent the night on st
They sent us the wrong check in code so we were stranded with no one to contact. I had lost my phone, and my partner was not able to get data. Luckily we ran into a tennet, or we would have never gotten in.

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.
