The hotel is very nice, the rooms are clean, and the fact that the walls are windows make it even prettier! The hotel is in a quiet area. You can easily access the hotel by train (it is one of the biggest building of the city so you can't miss it).

The room was ready earlier than check in which was great for us. Clean and... More

Good hotel, clean rooms, friendly reception and great bar/restaurant with good quality food. Hotel is in a central location for many of the big businesses in the locality and is competitively priced. Highly recommended for staying during a short business trip or longer vacation.!

I'll start by saying that our experience was probably not indicative of a normal visit. It started when the OSCE meeting was taking place at the Conference Center, which required police presence and streets blocked all around the hotel. Very hard to get to but once there, we felt very safe! Our room was very small and only set up... More
