Nice Nelson Stay
Great place to meet people. The desk staff were very helpful and nice. The rooms are a bit small, but there are plenty of bathrooms and showers. Three areas to relax in. Free bread every day. Gas grill and patio area. Super location near shops and restaurants.

Good deal
The location is great, next to supermarkets and restaurants. It's well cleaned and the showers are good. All beds have power outlets by their side. The location is a bit noisy from traffic and maybe for this reason the room had ony a tine window and a wall covered with wood, so it was a bit hot there.
