November 2010

Situated in the city center, good breakfast buffet

Extremely noisy (thin walls, you can hear everything from the corridor), rooms are rather used,´´equipped´´ with an odd smell and a very bad old mattress // Staff in the restaurant area nice but extremely slow and incompetent // overall I felt very uncomfortable and would not book this hotel again.

Nice big rooms, excellent renovated in an attractive old building in the center of the city

Access to hotel parking is difficult to find

we enjoyed our stay very much

the signs directing you to the hotel throughout the city are basically useless. Use gps or park near the pedestrian zone and walk to the hotel to get directions to the parking

We were upgraded to ´´The Napoleon Suite´´ free of charge. The room has twice the price we paid ! Very relaxing (free) spa at top floor/roof with wonderful view over Villach and the mountains. Free Wlan.
