August 2013

Location is fairly central and has good tram link to main train station and the transfers this allows. Staff are very friendly and accommodating.

Breakfast is good, but children being charged the same price as adults is excessive. At €17 for breakfast, this was acceptable to me as an adult, what with the variety available and the amount you can help yourself to. But for my 9 year old son, who had some toast and cereal, it was not worth the same price. As such we ate out each morning after that. Shame really as what was on offer was of good quality and variety. Yes this is an inner city hotel, but its not much to look at and the grounds, for what they are, are immaculate. The hotel is also quite warm and as such the foyer is quite uncomfortable. The room does have air conditioning, but if you are sensitive to all but the minimal amount of noise, it is quite noticeable.

The position of the hotel is excellent, and the quality is good and can be recommended

At checkin the staff was unfriendly - therefore the reservation to recommend the hotel

Schön, sauber und freundliches Personal. So soll ein 4 Sterne Hotel sein!

Parkmöglichkeiten sind keine vorhanden, außer in der teueren Tiefgarage
