The hotel is quite new. Location is good, near tram station and walking distance to important attractions. Downside by the time I visited it was more like a soft opening. Construction work still been done, 8th floor which I stayed still certain rooms were under construction. Cleaning staff is really really noisy. Besides those opening issues, I think is a good value for the money paid and the location. Breakfast is regular, can improve!
