6/10 Good

we were on our bike trip, and although the hotel offer us to park the bike in their basement, the lift is too tiny to fit in our bike (!). Breakfast is too simply and is not much better than nothing. Disappointed.

the hotel, a bright green building, is hard to miss as soon as you step out of the train station. From there, it’s a bit difficult to explore the rest of the town but the amenities cannot be beat. Really enjoyed the breakfast!
