We also read the reviews and read that it was loud but decided to book it regardless for Friday and Saturday night. Really really regretted that decision. I would only stay here from Monday to...

We stayed for a few days and enjoyed our stay. The location is very handy to lots of great restaurants, bars and clubs - also there are a lot of pretty squares/parks nearby which we'd recommend for a wander or drink or bite to eat.

Simple, good kitchen, nice breakfast, helpful staff and quality facilities. Free computer use, fast WiFi, smoking area and 24 hour staff. They also gave us breakfast when we arrived early before check in. Close to the metro (15 minute walk), many bars, great restaurants and the main bus terminal.
