Great choice to stay although a little walk to Metro and centre but safe and pleasant walk. Would defiantly book and stay again. Rooms very clean and comefortable, staff friendly and helpful. Able to get coffee and food downstairs.
Mr Ian C

Fantastic reception ladies and loads of eateries in the building. Easy walking distance to beach and a tram outside the front entrance takes you to the train which then takes you to the city. Rooms were an large size and bathrooms generous with excellent water pressure and temperature. Rooms were clean and some even have a little balcony. Noise level was not too bad as the students usually quietened down at night. I highly recommend this accommodation.
