Tiles, poorly painted white brick walls which were dirty, old metal beds, which were rusting, Tv and Wifi didn't work properly, toaster, handle ripped off. No matching chairs, chairs in room rusty old outdoor... More

Great place to overnight or for a couple of days. Secure parking (free) means you can take the car, and being on a main road it's easy to get to. Train station is only a short walk for access to the city. Room was clean and comfortable and bigger than I expected. And best of all - No traffic noise.
