February 2011

The room design is not for everyone. Dark, green marble everywhere but the rooms are exceptionally large, incl. bathrooms, all with tub and shower. The location right in the center of town is great.

Breakfast is too expensive for the choice and quality offered

Nice location, nice large room

The hotel building and facilities are 5***** The hotel staff rates 3***, I felt ignored when I had requests. Service level and kindness needs improvement. Breakfast is 4**** So, I would rate it as a 4**** hotel, but then it is too expensive.
