We stayed here on a business trip. The room was comfortable. The breakfast was included and had a nice selection. The rooms were quiet. The only issue was trying to connect to another guests room and the front desk staff were not able to do this because they didn't speak English.

Nice hotel in a quiet area of the city. Rooms are well equipped and clean. Bathroom is large without a separate shower. Service is friendly and quick. The restaurant serves Italian food, which is OK if you don't want to go for dinner outside the hotel. Breakfast is very good.

Great hotel just a 20 minute walk from the Altstadt, or Streetcar stops are 5 minutes from the hotel. Easy parking in the hotel lot or in the basement garage. A fine Italian Restaurant in the hotel with great food and service, and for a change of pace an outstanding Balkan Restaurant (The Adria) is a 3 minute walk from... More

The location was fine for a city which can be bleak at times. It is situated on a treelined street with plenty of parking space. The towncentre is about half an hour's walk away. Not too bad but there were massive reconstruction works on near the station which caused a bit of a detour qnd delay. The corner room was... More

Used this hotel as an overnight stop en-route to Poland etc. Unfortunately, the hotel doesn't have air conditioning anywhere making our stay almost unbearable with the high temperatures that Europe was incurring at the time. Otherwise, the place is rather charming and the staff were all very pleasant. Locally made chocolates were offered at reception to try out. They were... More

As this hotel is in a residential area it is very quiet and peaceful. It is not far from either the main station or a tram stop. The rooms are a nice size and are clean and comfortable. The bathroom is a little cramped for space but is functional. The staff are friendly and helpful. Good free internet is provided... More

Good hotel for staying a day or two. Location is not very close to the city-center, you need to go on foot for about twenty-thirty minutes to reach famous cathedrals or you can go by tram several stations. Nice breakfast, very tasty.The staff is pleasant, but reception doean't always speak English. You can take coffee-to-go there. Beds and pillows were... More
