Modern hotel with friendly and attentive front desk and service staff. The breakfast buffet offered a vast selection of dishes and everything was freshly made. It was also suitable for vegetarians, although vegans will have to go only with fruits, veggies and muesli/oatmeal. They will provide you with soy milk if you ask for it. Room was spacious enough for... More

1 night stop-over en-route to Slovenia.... SatNav makes it easy to find, otherwise could be tricky. Underground parking (Payment). Check in and rooms very good. We used the hotel restaurant, was Okay, but I thought it was expensive (E78 inc 2 drinks!) Staff very good and efficient. Note at the time of stay - there is MAJOR Roadworks right outside... More

We stayed here overnight to break our journey from Austria back to the UK. Great modern style Novatel with the standard excellent level of service. On site parking (payable underground) is very helpful. We found our way through the roadworks very quickly. Dinner was served in a good style with time between courses, breakfast was buffet but extensive choice and... More

Really modern hotel, catered for business too. Rooms slightly more up-spec than usual Novotel. Small bar area with modern restaurant and good menu for families. Free wifi available in room. Good hotel for our overnight stop from Heidelberg on way through Switzerland to Bologna.

The Hotel rooms are quite average. The beds are nice but nothing special. The best at the hotel is the breakfast. The selection is huge and taste is great. Hotel is located in the city center which is quite convenient, but makes parking expensive.

Booked the hotel for a one night stay on our way to Berchtesgaden. Even though the road works made the navigation more difficult, it was easy to find the hotel. We parked at the Staatsteater- was directed by the GPS. Not too expensive- £12 for the overnight stay. A short walk to the hotel- 5 minutes. Realised later the hotel... More

Excellent hotel with great rooms, service-minded staff, good restaurant with lovely breakfast with great selection at a good price. Well recommended. The only drawback was the location, due to road works and blocked streets.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Arrived late in the evening and suffered a very hot night as the air con seemed feeble. However, after reporting it to reception, the next day a new motor was fitted very quickly and we were able to enjoy cooler temperatures! The room was VERY clean, and probably the quietest hotel we have ever stayed... More
