The location of the hotel at the centre of the centre of this beautiful city is just perfect. We had the unfortunate situation of a bicycle race in the citycenter and therefore an alternate route for the parking was offered, however there were some technical issues and we couldn't use the parking. This problem wasn't really solved by the staff,... More

Which was classy. Second stay, was ok. The breakfast was still good, the room was clean, abit smaller, which was ok. But they did not give... More

Staff was very friendly and welcoming throughout our visit. Our luggage was lost and they did what they could to accommodate our immediate needs. Breakfast was very good, some may say it's overpriced but we enjoyed the variety. Overall a very pleasant stay and would stay here again.

Very good location, downtown but quiet, comfortable, with parking (if you arrive early enough or you are lucky). Cool decoration, kind service. Clean and new. We did not take the hotel breakfast, too expensive for the contents, but there are plenty of good places for breakfast around.

Very good/central location, but still a quiet place. Very clean and modern accomodation, cozy/comfortable bed. Main issue (for me personally) - a ridiculously expensive breakfast (18 euros). I just needed a coffee and a croissant, that's it.. - they asked 18 euros. Outrageous! (the rest of the stay is fantastic)

It was a challenge to find the hotel by car, but when we found it, there was more than enough parking space. The price of 20 Euro is a bit high, but then again... you are in the city centre. We had a warm welcome in a relaxing atmosphere. The room was very nice and modern, clean and quiet with... More

Overnight stop on way back to UK. Route instructions and photos mailed to us before arrival which were very clear and very useful as city is largely pedestrianised. Very warm welcome including city map. All key hotel information on room key card - breakfast times, checkout, wifi password etc - so simple yet very useful. Breakfast good too. Very quiet... More
