This is Louvre Group's budget level hotel, equivalent in standard to the blue Ibis Budget. Did just what was wanted, namely simple layout, clean, warm and a good shower. Reception staff helpful and friendly. No need to add hotel breakfast, massive shopping mall right next door with great food outlets. Location also perfect for transport, central bus and train stations right next door too, with tram stop right outside hotel and only a couple of stops into the central area for the excellent Christmas market. Found a completely unexpected bonus, night bus to airport in the middle of the night starts from right round the corner, no need to even go down the block to the central bus station!
