8.4.Very good.
  • 8.0.Very good

    Very nice facility and helpful staff. The cleaning was a little less accurate than last time I stayed here, but still good. I was facing the road and it was very noisy due to loud people partying until late (I think there is a bar there), so make sure to ask for earplugs at the reception.

  • 2.0.Poor

    If you want to stay awake all night, then choose this hotel. Teenagers shouting, screaming, and partying all night in front of the hotel. The rooms are not sound proof. So forget about sleeping at night!

    Good location, average everything else

    A great location. Comfortable beds and the rooms are OK. Breakfast isn't great and perhaps a bit expensive overall.

    Clean and very tidy hotel in the city center. Welcoming staff. If you go there in winter, make sure you tell the front desk to turn the heating on. Our room was beyond cold when we first got there and it took a while to warm it up.

    I liked that it was a young very nice staf. I didn’t like that when i went to my room there were pillows and sheets infront of the room next to me. And that the parking very small was for a big car 😃

    Perfect location, in the center of town. Friendly staff and good atmosphere. The rooms are a bit small and the cleanliness could be better, but all in all, we had a pleasant stay.

    Black mold, never cleaned, front desk rude

    "it's not my problem - it is a housekeeping problem", said the lady at the front desk. I stayed for 4 nights at the hotel. I noticed the black mold in the shower and informed the front desk at the beginning of my stay. They promised to notify housekeeping and take care of it right away. That night, mold was still there. Next day, mold was still there. I reminded the front desk and asked again to remedy the problem and/or move me to another room. I was told there were no rooms available but check back in the next day. I checked again the next evening (after seeing that again the mold was still there) but was told "it's not my problem - it is a housekeeping problem". That is a strange way to respond to a guest. Is the front desk not representative of the hotel as a whole? In summary: disgusting black mold in the shower, never resolved through the 5 day stay, hotel staff never changed the room and was rude in response. Giving 2 stars instead of 1 just because the hotel has potential. Clean up your showers and your act.
