Nice location

Located just in front of Manor supermarket, the train station, cinemas and the central postal office. I had a room with windows to the inner yard, so did not hear the traffic noise at all. However my room was next to the elevator, so I could hear people passing by all the time, including the night time.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

After making the reservation, please double check with the hotel directly that they have received the order or not. I was surprised at the front desk when they told me they did not have my reservation on file.
