Liked: It has a nice location and is a beautiful place. It is very close to the train station. It also provides lockers where you can keep your belongings secure.

Disliked: I had two different staff members tell me two different things about reservations. I almost lost money because of it. Also, I was charged more than I was under the impression of initially. The price online was not completely accurate.

Liked: Convenient central location

Disliked: Random opening hours - no check in until 5pm, expensive and unreliable internet, rather mixed clientele: rowdy school groups and a few crazy individuals. Also hidden (well, its in the fine print) costs if you dont have a members card
