Good hotel but Don’t expect too much
It’s a small boutique hotel and also has apartments. 8-9 minutes from main train station by walk. So it is not really in the city centre but it is at walking distance. Looks safe area. Hotel is clean and OK; the staff is friendly; I was in a apartment room (in front of the hotel) room was perfectly fine but the heating system was too small for such a big room; so the room was cold and this make the stay a bit un-comfy. The rest was fine.

Fine for a quick solo trip.
The hotel is a little behind on decor and style, but the staff was helpful and for budget and time, the hotel was perfect for what I needed.

Warm and cozy
Very comfortable, great location, like the lounge with the fireplace. Just a slight annoyance at the charges for bag storage (and for early check in if that applies)
