Liked: a fairly good location near the train station you can charge your phone with usb plug

Disliked: My room (113) was right in front of the train station. From the window, I could directly see the platform and trains coming in and out, which was quite noisy. They provided a clean bed sheet every day (I stayed for two nights but booked separately) but I could smell of damp clothes from my metres. As shower room and toilet were inside of the room, you can hear when others are using it.

Trip Type:
City break

Liked: 10-15min walk to citycenter, close to train station, nice breakfast, comfy beds and pillows

Disliked: Hot water in our room was weak but there are other toilets in the hallway that you can use. The room I was assigned is by the road so I can hear the cars passing by at night.7:30 am, Smoke detector went off and had this very loud alarm that woke everyone up. It kept on going on and off for about 15minutes. This is not good for people who want to sleep.
