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

I had a great weekend with friends. Nice clean friendly hotel. Awsome Sunday breakfast / brunch and very nice profesional people. Ask for an ommelet at breakfast and you are in for a surprise. Also liked the achitecture of hotel very unique.

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

I just spent a night in a single room at this hotel, booked via booking.com.

Stayed at the Ypsilon hotel for a bussiness trip and were very happy with the room and the service. The feeling was of a home away from home, nice and cosy. The stuff were extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel has many features for bussiness people such as renting a computer or handling one's paperwork. The location is good for... More
