Negative Reviews

Noisy area

Located on a main road, you may find the area noisy, especially in the morning and evenings, with the sound of traffic, trams and training. Guests recommended either bringing earplugs or requesting a quieter room facing away from the main street.

Not all rooms have lockers

Different room types are available and some of these rooms are not equipped with lockers. Guests in these rooms complained that there was no space to safely store belongings and valuables.

Poorly connected free Wi-Fi service

A free Wi-Fi service is included and a paid-for option is available. The free service is unreliable and guests reported that it is slow and can’t always be connected to from the privacy of their rooms.
