Modern hotel in new area of town near the arena within easy driving distance (about 10-12 minutes) to the city center and most points of interest. There's a small shopping mall with some restaurants not far away, other than that there's no restaurants or shops in walking distance. Not sure about public transport options in the area and didn't try the hotel restaurant either. Upshots: The hotel is cheaper than similar ones closer to the center, has comfy and usually quiet rooms with modern furnishings, plenty of free parking and decent wifi internet, and also friendly staff. The only problem I found was that the sound insulation in between rooms and towards the hallway wasn't very good. Fortunately the other guests were quiet, only the cleaning staff made some noise during some of the mornings of my stay. This was never going on for very long though, so no major inconvenience.
