The hotel is modern and accessible to the train station. The rooms are large. However, rooms are dark, so it is hard to read. Also Internet was intermittent and weak so we could not hold a scheduled teleconference.

This place is weird. I can't quite put my finger on it exactly, but it wasn't my favorite.

Good location. Large clean rooms. Bar was expensive and staff was courteous but not as welcoming as some of the other hotels. Overall I would recommend.

Heat didn’t work. Poor room design. But staff was nice and close to station.

The hotel met my expectations. I loved that it was close to the train station. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, clean, and a wonderful window that spanned the room. My only complaint was the room was cold and the room thermostat couldn't be raised about 25 c. It put a damper on what I think is a wonderful hotel.

I was only there one night, though I wish it were longer. On any issue the staff resolved the problem in MOMENTS: for example wi-fi connectivity and the replacement of an empty non-working little refrigerator with a working one. The room was big, the bed was comfortable. There was a desk to use with an appropriate chair. The decor, though a tiny bit worn, had this classic woody mod 20th century look that was rather pleasing. Check-in check-out, information questions answered were all quick, efficient and, dare I say, charming.

Fridge did not work and stuf did not help with resolving the problem
