Very good centrally located place to stay for visitors of the city, both businessmen and tourists. Friendly environment, caring personnel, two swimming pools and sauna. Comfortable bed and pillows, which ensures good rest. The only suggestion to improve is related to sound insulation of rooms - at times one could noise from neighboring room.This is worth taking into account during... More

We stayed one night. The hotel is not centrally located and the facilities are not impressive. The room was ok but the bathroom is in need of an upgrade. There was a window in the bathroom that opened to the neighbor's apartment and you could hear everyone talking. The shower walls were moldy. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant... More

It is not centrally located but you know it before booking it. Eooms are ok, big enough, swimming pool as well ok, restaurant wasn't amazing we found better italian restaurants in downtown. If you just go to sleep for a weekend and you get a discounted rate then it is ok.

There was one positive; it has friendly nice Italian staff. But that's it. The place is expensive. It is way out of town. I booked it purely because it has a swimming pool. Which I was told would not be open. It does not have wi-fi in the room. Which was tiny.There was no view of the lake. Do yourself... More

A most ordinary hotel. First, very few positives...... 1. It's in the City Centre and almost next door to the convenient Bus Services. 2. Pleasant and courteous Front Office Staff Negatives... so many..... Ordinary Rooms, Very Ordinary Bathrooms. No vent in the bathrooms. Lift seems to be of 1940s. The Floor Passages look more of a hospital than a hotel.... More

Had a horrible experience, and the staff did nothing to help the situation-even when the staff told me they knew the manager was wrong. Rooms were ok. Food was not. Stay here only if there is nothing else available in town.

I have stayed for only one night and my overall impression is that is an ok hotel. The location is very good, close to the center. The receptionist was pleasant and quick in checking in. The room was spacious, looking good and clean. The bathroom gave away the older look of the place. The only minus i could say was... More
