The staff were absolutely lovely and would help us at the drop of a hat. The food was really good and the music was fun. The smoking downstairs in the restaurant is a huge turn off for me, as there is nowhere for non-smokers to enjoy their food. I rarely dined downstairs because it stank of cigarettes. One of the clothes dryers was out of order which was inconvenient. It was near impossible to get hot water in the showers - sometimes you had to run it for 10 minutes just to get it going. I took completely cold showers on a number of occasions. During our stay, someone defecated on the bathroom floor and walked it all throughout the room. After that incident, we often found very dirty toilet seats and it was not enjoyable trying to use them.

The place is neat, organized, clean and with friendly staff.. the only downside is the accessibility from train stations. Overall it was a nice stay.
