Staff was very friendly

The rooms are very expensive for the old equipment they have. They can start reviewing their cleaning staff too, I had blond hair in my bed and towels that did not belong to me.

Really friendly and helpful staff. Nice gardenrestaurant. Good area for sightseeing (close to beach, shopping area, train station)

Rooms are rather small. Sound isolation in the rooms is not too good. (from outside it's ok)
