8/10 Very good

Access to room is little hard for older people and breakfast is expensive, service and workers are nice and honest so as location which is across the train station.

Things to whinge about
Three hotels have been consolidated into one business served by a single front desk, lobby, and restaurant. Because of this, the hotel is a maze of strangely connected corridors. My biggest concern is that my roof, at the far end of the labyrinth, had only a single exit as did that floor of the hotel, down a winding staircase. This arrangement strikes me as a fire hazard. The rooms were okay and bathrooms really tiny, but functional. Staff were someone sparse. The breakfast selection is limited, with some supplies running out by 7:30 and not replenished. I didn't appreciate the hostess of the breakfast restaurant yelling across all the other dinners to get my room number. All together, it left me in a pretty poor mood.

6/10 Good

Extremely convenient location. But my room was absolutely tiny, nothing like the picture shown on Expedia. The carpet was really dirty (looks like a bunch of students had a house party in there). The bathroom was clean but also incredibly tiny. If you have more than just a carry on luggage good luck fitting you and the luggage into the room.
