No shower available. No shower in room and no communal shower. They made me come to the front desk after checkout time and lent me the key to a room with a shower. Unacceptable. Room was tiny and way too hot. Elevator.

Yes you can go at central taking metro 1-5 one stop. You can go also to Bourse taking the tram 3-4 ( pre metro) one stop. From your hotel is 10 min walk for the Bourse and Gare Centrale.
