              Very good room. Helpful staff. Appreciated the coffee and orange juice for customers leaving for the airport at 4.30am. Residents discount in the restaurant was appreciated.

              it was excellent, I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel. Location was perfect and service was great.

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              Art & paintings all over, good restaurant

              I think that the breakfast buffet is way below the level of the rest of the hotel. Also, we had to have 4 out of 6 light bulbs replaced in the bathroom - rooms should be checked between visitors.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Friendly and helpful staff; central yet quiet location; lovely artwork displayed throughout the hotel; comfortable, spacious, and well-appointed rooms.

            • Family with children
              9.6

              Great restaurant with delicious food, perfect location, only 3-4 minutes on foot to city center, very friendly staff who was extremly helpful to organise a special tour on short notice (although it was difficult to find a tour operator, but they managed to do so - great service!). We will definitely come back to this hotel next time.

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              We found the staff enormously helpful both before and during our stay. We had overbooked, and they noticed it and sent us an E-Mail about it before we arrived. One day, the desk manager even offered to walk us to the restaurant we wanted to go to.

              It is a bit out of the center of town.

            • Single
              9.2

              Nice original cosy atmosphere, very clean room and friendly staff!
