Quiet and well-located
We were there at relatively low season but the hotel was really quiet. Even with the window open there was no noise from outside. The location was good, a nice walk up the river to the city centre, past the Bild museum. Breakfast was a great spread and we had unexpected free buffet dinners on two evenings - though the cost to add an extra guest was in any case very reasonable. The only downside was the lack of kettle in our room (quite odd given that there was a fridge), and the rather miserable hot water dispenser for tea at breakfast - small mugs, two thirds full and often not very hot.

University near
The hotel is next to the hospital and it seems that many of the people staying here are relatives to patients or are out- patients themselves. No frills, but practical and clean. The town center is a short walk away as is the main university campus.

The hotel is pretty basic. Breakfast was not great. Walking distance to the university and the hospital. Around 15 minutes walk to downtown. Very accessible by buses. Bed was comfortable. Staff are friendly.

Clean rooms with plenty of space. No room service. No alcohol served after 8 pm. Strange humming noise. Hotel is far away from city centre.

I mean it was not close to other places. The view is within the hospital area and most of the customers are in the rehabilitation stage. It felt in a way different than the other hotels I have been to. The breakfast was good though and the staff is helpful and it was quite in the night for a good sleep.

Mycket ljud från andra rum hörs. Hörde tvn från rummet bredvid som var på halva natten..
