It is very close to everything. Free city tram is just around the corner. The staff was friendly and gave me a late checkout upon request. the place is clean and my stay was hassle free. There was no oven in the kitchen even though it shows in the pictures. I had planned things thinking there was an oven. So that part was disappointing. But overall, it was a pleasant experience.
