Excellent service,nice staff,very clean,fast internet connection when it works,convenient location for a business traveler,modern ambient,good restaurant.

In the room,there was damaged hairdryer and Internet on the complete floor didn't work. I have recived appologies form the hotel staff,but that of course din't solve the problem. Especially if you are business traveler and you need wi-fi connection. I have stayed before in the same hotel,although similar room,the one I stayed this time,furniture,especially table was worned out,hairdryer as mentioned,and sound isolation from the next room was weak. When they switched on TV,to sleep I had to use earplugs.

The hotel has been one of the best 4 star hotels we have ever been to! Not only is it brand new (just half a year old) but it is also a design hotel offering a lot of comfort. One of the highlights of the hotel is the breakfast, where you can get fresh and cold salmon (I never got that anywhere before - usually you only get smoked salmon) from the sea cut into delicate slices every morning!
