First of all, this is a very comfortable, and quiet hotel in a good part of the city. Secondly, the staff is very cordial, helpful, and professional. The reason I took one star off, just 3 things they can improve on, a) My room had zero wifi - looks like their wifi setup does not reach the extremities of the hotel. The staff immediately moved me to a different room, so not an issue, but if rooms were unavailable, this could have been an issue. b) I stayed for 5 nights, and in 5 nights, not once were the water bottles refilled nor were the shampoo bottles. c) The shower, I was on the 6th floor, and the cold water pressure was very low. So the shower was like boiling yourself every morning. Besides the above two very minor issues and the shower issue, greatly compensated by the staff's professionalism and the general quality of the hotel, I feel comfortable recommending it.
Good hotel in a great location. Walking distance to all main areas and right next to the tram line.
Good hotel with perfect location very close to the railway station.
Very satisfied with my 8-day stay. Staff were always courteous, helpful, and responsive. Room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Good breakfast. I was impressed that the staff took the initiative to keep the lobby and breakfast areas always tidy. I am a regular user of Holiday Inn Express motels in the US and was pleased to find this one providing the services expected from the brand in my old home town.
