Extremly unclean with several shitmarks from previous guests in the toilet. Nightclub outside the window with heavy music until 02 and no available seats in the breakfast room next morning. I stay around 60 nights per year at hotels and this was one of the worst experiences so far.

We spent three nights in hotel. Personnel was very friendly and family room was spacious for two children. Also breakfast was great. Minor minus comes for the noise outside the hotel (from nearby terrance).

The staff at this hotel definitely go the extra mile for families. The rooms are a little tired and need an upgrade. My gripe is that residents have to pay for coffee and tea in the lobby - this is normally provided free - it can't possibly generate enough income to offset the lack of goodwill and would put me...

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
