Good views of the city, but it's the only positive. When we arrive at the hotel commented several colleagues that it reminded of an old eastern European hotel. Both inside and outside the hotel had clear signs of aging. Service was generally poor. The hotel did not have either air conditioning or functioning ventilation. When we stayed there, it was...

Service is ok, the design pretty outdated but the rooms are reasonable big. So for people without big needs it can work out. Everything is clean and function ok. Just not very charming. The same is true for restaurant and the lobby.

Great view, comfortable room, ample breakfast, pleasant staff but hotel was not accommodating to a group of guests staying there in a heat wave. Many of us needed fans or portable air conditioners, and it took multiple requests, 2 -4 nights without any help and little sleep, before the hotel responded.

This hotel overlooks the city and has a great view from the room. The rooms are adequate and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is a little way from downtown but is convenient to public transportation. It takes about 30 minutes or so to reach old town via train (very easy). The food in the restaurant is... More

My family booked this hotel for 2 nights because of the good rating on the internet but we were somewhat disappointed. To be fair, this is a decent hotel and the room we got was clean and comfortable. But to me that is too be expected for a hotel of this price anyway. Perhaps because we didnt get a room... More

I just spent one night at this hotel because of a course I attended close by. The room was rather small, but ok for the 1 night I've spent there. Furniture, bed etc. was fine. Just the carpet looked a bit old and one could see that already many people where walking over it. Bathroom was fine, although I would... More
