Had a great stay at the Mercure hotel. Supremely located, right next to the central train station with an easy 20 min (tram) ride to the university. Room was nice, clean and good. Nice views. Great breakfast. Few caveats: no safe in my room and the ac was not available. I should add that it wasn't too hot (despite being in high summer). Still, the option was not available despite ac being advertised as a feature of the hotel. Nevertheless, had a great stay at a reasonable price.

This review is based on 2 seperate free invites. Hotel rooms are rather small but cozy, with pricing in mind they could be a tad bit larger (i was told it would have been a bit over 100€ the night). Breakfast is "all you can eat"-based, due to that it can be recommended, with a few nicks here and there which could be better (what exactly was given to staff directly). Pricing again is on the higher side (said to be 23€). 1 Star down exactly due to pricing, it might be acceptable in todays Hotel stay but for me it is too much on the high side.
