I have stayed here many times. I always book a non smoking room. However when I went in room it was clearly smoking room due to smell. I went back to reception to ask to be moved but initially they refused saying no nonsmoking rooms left. I insisted showing them my booking again. the desk cleark finally admitted thyat thyey did have a non smoking room available so end result OK but unacceptable

Room was small but clean and comfortable. Very convenient for city centre and restaurant so it can be recommended for one night stay for a business.

Breakfast was included but the choice was not varied, it was served in a nex door restaurant but it was not very comfortable.

The hotel was nice, clean and well-situated. The staff was very kind and competent.

The staff should know that Ernst & Young employees do not need to pay the bill which is send to the account department.

It's always very warm (too warm) in the rooms at this Hotel. And since it is not possible to turn the heat down it becomes a problem.
