Liked: Nothing.

Disliked: Very noisy situation near railway station. Toilet and shower were awfull, air did't circulate. Rooms are difficult to breathe because you can't open window because the railways and blanket were too thick and uncomfortable hot!! Wall-to-wall carpet is awfull - take them away because they aren't helthy!

Liked: Atmosphere and very clean. Very modern

Disliked: Initially i was booked into a room, when I climbed the two flights of stairs and got there all the beds were taken. So I went back to down to reception who then put me in another room, but other than that, very good stay.
