Nice Accommodation!
This hotel is nice and in a very central location. The room was slightly on the small and minimalist side, which was fine for what I needed it for. Only things to be aware of is that there is that the wall between the bedroom and shower is glass so you can look straight in, although there is a curtain on the bedroom side to cover it and after I showered in the morning the room started to have a slight sewage smell.

A comfortable stay
it was a good hotel - comfortable and big rooms, nice shower and bathroom. All I can ask for. Didn't have breakfast there, so couldn't comment on that. The parking is pretty much next door and was paid. Stay again - Yes, without any second thoughts.

We had a lovely time at the Passage. It was located to a lot of restaurants and shopping. We arrived early and they accommodated us with a free upgrade. The bathroom had a rainfall shower head, which had great water pressure. Overall, lovely stay!
