This hotel has a great location. Everytime close enough to drop our shopping and then move on again. Rooms are very clean, and comfortable. We had a good sleep overall. Good value for money. Bathroom had more space than expected of European en-suites. Would definately recommend the hotel and even book another stay here.

We stayed here for one night. It is in an excellent location, and the rooms are clean and very, very comfortable. It was quite warm, but the rooms we had have air conditioning, so this wasn't a problem. One room was an attic room, and the exposed beams made it a lovey place to sleep. I appreciate that others have... More

The hotel has a very good location with a view on the castle. Our room was small and there was incredibly hot inside the room. Although it was raining and very cold outside and we let the window open all day and all night, it was still too hot, that you couldn´t even sleep because of it. Our friends next... More

Well situation just round the corner from the Castle of the Counts, and a short walk from the old centre; friendly and helpful reception, clean and quiet room. My only criticism is that the shower needed and non-slip mat and the breakfast was so expensive that it put us off and we went out for one.

I booked this hotel on-line as part of a Eurostar package for its proximity to the University, and was pleasently surprised by its excellent location near the main tourist attractions, waterways and shopping district. There are all sorts and all pricings of eatingplaces around the hotel.

The location near to the Castle, square and cobbled streets with plenty of restaurants and bars nearby is great. However the staff on reception appeared disinterested and did not volunteer any information about the hotel or the area. We were not allocated a room in the main hotel, (which has the interesting facade and entrance) but in a newer build... More

An expensive but average hotel, only good thing was the location. Stains on the floor, ripped nets on the window. Asked for breakfast when making the reservation, ended up paying richly for it...not good value for money

Went for four days and three nights at the Hotel. Good location, good rooms, great breakfast and looked good. Staff very helpful. Thoroughly recommend it as base. On direct tram route to Central Station (Tram 1).

You can't beat the location but a very average hotel. We booked a room with an extra bed for our young Daughter however, the room we had been allocated smelled strongly of sewage! After complaining a new room was found but it only had two single beds. As she is only three, so we just about managed. Breakfast is fine... More
