Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed borrowing our bikes. Our central location is perfect if you would like to explore the city by bike. In the summertime you can take a ride to the beach to watch the sunset. I wish you warmly welcome back! More

We liked almost everything we used. The reception, the staff, breakfast,newspaper and the lobby. But... to have a small single bed and a bedside cabinet you pull down from the wall does not qualify for a being a double-room. And the price wasn't lower than other similar hotels proper double rooms

Dear Hans I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Our twin rooms are very popular and was not available this date. It seems that you have stayed in one of our economy rooms. This is a budget alternative with a single bed and a wallbed. Please do not hesitate to ask for another roomtype next time and I make sure... More

The staff at this hotel could not be better. They are very friendly, helpful and professional. I stay at this hotel 40+ nights a year. Only negative is the cleaning crew that do a very poor job of cleaning, and sometimes miss your room completely. It would also be nice to see a relationship with the gym attached to this... More

We used this to visit the Elmia trade show. The hotel is just across the street which makes it very convinient. The hotel is fine. Rooms are basic with a good bed and bathroom. The breakfast is a bit crowded and give the sence of a mess hall. Staff is friendly and helpful. So no regrets

Nice hotel with great staff. Unfortunately there is a discotheque below, and the noise goes all the way to the 7th floor. The music didnt end until 04:00 at the night. If you want to sleep, go somewere else.

The hotel has a good location just outside the central station, the staff was friendly and the breakfast was good but the room felt quite old and the TV is located on a wall in a corner and if you lay down in the bed it's more or less impossible to watch the TV. It would be a great idea... More
