Cleanliness is very good. Climate around hotel is great.

Room is little small. Since I am vegetarian I could not find many things for breakfast.

Central location of hotel between railway station and town centre with pedestrian area is excellent. Given this expensive location, rooms are suprisingly spacious. They're purely functional, there isn't really decoration or anything to make the room feel cosy. Just plain and easy to clean.

close to train station but quiet. suite very spacious. very friendly staff.

just a minor criticism: tries to show nice room design but furniture looks and feels cheap. WLAN signal was very weak and therefore slow with connection losses.
