8/10 Very good

NJ traveller
The staff was pleasant and helpful despite being very busy. Housekeeping respond quickly for my request. I see management walking around to check on things. The breakfast was very good with good variety. Location was excellent close to park and public transport and museums(walking distance). Easy to get to hotel on tram from Central station. Hotel is clearly well used and hence a little worn out. But clean and serviceable. Also tight in space but as expected for centrally located hotel in heart of city.

6/10 Good

It was larger than most rooms I’ve stayed at in Europe which was nice. We thought it was a great location, in the past we have been further from the city centre. House keeping was the only drawback for us. We had to take towels from the house keeping cart in the hall almost daily. Sheets were not changed out ever. Shampoo bottle was empty when we arrived and remained empty for our whole visit. We also borrowed the broom to do our own sweeping.

Unexpected Stairs, 6” to get around bed to bathroo
Room353 is very hard to get around bed. Please remove the desk to make it safe. The beam in the shower is hard to avoid. Steps in and out of hotel and after exiting elevator were unexpected and a challenge.

I like the location. I didn't like my initial room given to me wasn't clean. The second room, the bathroom, had mildew in the shower, on the shower floor, and on the walls.
