    Clean and spacious hotel with a 3-5mins from the tram stop which takes you to main train station (2 stops) which makes it a great location. Breakfast spread is not international but has great selection of pastries, ham, cheese, cereal and yoghurt with options for hot drinks such as hot chocolate, cuppacino etc.
