This hotel is all about the location. It's great if, like me, you were visiting the European Space Agency because it's just across the road. It's smart enough from the outside but room facilities are a little old-fashioned and not quite what you expect. For example, my room was a double but consisted of two single beds pushed together. The TV was also so old, you had to push a button to turn it on. The TV reception and choice of channels were also poor. The lack of free bottled water or any tea/coffee making facilities in the room was also disappointing. As was the absence of any 'Do Not Disturb' sign in my room, which resulted in a maid opening the room door on the second morning and waking me up. One side of the hotel is located right next to railway tracks which are used by early morning freight trains. And they can be noisy. One train woke me up at 6.30am on the first morning with its screeching. So both mornings' sleep were disrupted for different reasons.
