Die Sauna wurde trotz zweimaliger Bitte nicht eingeschaltet. Es waren keine Bademäntel verfügbar. Das Komfortzimmer war sehr dunkel mit einem kleinen Fenster in der hintersten Ecke des Raumes. Im Flur lagen Malerabdeckfolien auf dem Fußboden.

Very good hotel. Great rooms, good leisure center with a swimming pool. Fitness center, though not too big, but it has a minimum daily workout equipment. Breakfast is an additional cost and the building next door is a supermarket and even a little further - the market, so that a very broad choice of where to procure yourself breakfast. Calm district, near the tram stop.

Keep in mind that the Internet is an extra cost, unless you have not Leonardo hotel a regular customer.

Availability of meal until 23:00h, very helpful for late arrivals.

Parking area was quite full, and one had to pay for it.

Food was delicious, staff could not have been more helpful, and room was spotless. It was great to have the heating/air conditioning switches in the room to change myself as needed.

Thought there could have been more in the way of bathroom cosmetics (only one tiny bottle of shower gel) and towels, although staff brought more when asked. Not as near to Fairground as thought from description

I was very pleased with the cleanliness of the hotel and the friendliness of staff. The restaurant was good as well - dinner and breakfast facilities.

Internet broadband access was not free of charge
