Convenient location and helpful staff

We stayed there for just one night, but the hotel staff were helpful and courteous and we enjoyed our stay. It's very close to the main station terminal, so that was helpful. Some of the interior of the hotel looked slightly dated, but overall we were happy with our experience.
