Don't get me wrong, we were perfectly content with this room. The location worked out very well for us, the staff was friendly, the room was very clean. The bed in the room was VERY hard, if that's what you like, but we were so exhausted each night, any bed would have been fine. There was great pressure in the... More

Good, clean, rooms with comfortable beds, Great Staff. Free WLAN. What more do you need? And they have smoking rooms! Getting rare these days. Very clean with everything one needs for a business trip. Wouldn't chose it for a family holiday, but that's just because of where it is :-) No idea what the restaurant is like, but the menu...

We stayed this hotel during a business trip and would return again.The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. They made some excellent meal recommendations, watched our bags for us after checking out, and even mailed our postcards for us. Rooms are a little small by US standards but comfortable. There isn't a tub so if you like to soak... More
