Pillow, matress of high quality, Location - Close to river and City center

Room was just too loud - I had the feeling to sleep in the Pub on the opposite side of the street, rather than in the Hotel room

Nice hotel (the view/style from outside has nothing to do with the style inside). bedrooms are large and very well furbished, personal is very nice and helpful. hotel is very well located regarding center and public transportation. Price is adequate Vs quality.

Parking not easy if not booked from hotel. Breakfast could have a bit more of choice.

- hotel is in the city centre, you can see the river from the hotel if you have the room on this site - I have received the ticket for the city transport from the hotel for free - personnel was kind

- noise in the room (there is a club under the hotel and there was a loud music playing during the night) // but after I have requested a new room, they exchanged it without any problems
