Liked: Very interesting building, big but small private rooms, which were more than adequate. They had complimentary earplugs, because of the pub downstairs, a very nice gesture. Very good wifi.

Disliked: Nothing really.

Liked: Location, value for money,

Disliked: Maybe a little thing. In our room was verry bad lightening. For advice could be some lights on the wall, not just on the ceiling.
