    Very friendly staff and very clean rooms. Well located with good connection to the city center! Excellent quality/price ratio!

  • Family with children

    Nice view, hotel located outside city center. They offer Parking outside the hotel and underground parking for 5 Euro per night. It is mostly recommended to leave your car in the hotel and use TAXIs inside the city. Nice and spacious rooms, nice breakfast, the staff was helpful. Overall nice experience.

    Nothing negative that comes up in mind.

    It was nice and quiet and relaxed athmosphere and I was able to get nice massage at short notice

    Bars a bit quiet

  • Single
    7.4

    Cozy spacious rooms with good bathroom, good location, friendly staff at the reception, fair value for money.

    The hotel really has problems with its the only remaining restaurant (there were two) - the menu is very scarce and the staff is awful - at the buffet breakfast they don't even bother to renew the simplest food items.

  • Single

    It is close to my business destination

    I had a non-smoking room. However the room smelled like it was smoked in. The temperature of the room was 25 degrees, which is way to much (should have been 20 at the most). In the morning, breakfast was at 8:00 out of juice, bread and eggs already.
