The Hotel was good. Clean rooms, but quite small, clean gym but quite small, clean spa but quite small. That is the reason why I give just three stars to the Hotel. I also didn`t like that the rooms where aligned so that the persons on the oposit side of the buiding could see you. The stuff is very friendly... More

I´m sorry you found everything small at the hotel. :-) I can´t do anything about the size in our gym and the relax area but if you come back to us again we do have larger rooms if you choose another room category then the one you had this...

The relax area on top floor have a gym, jacuzzy and a sauna with a beautiful view over the rooftops of the city. Hotel staff are very helpful and... More

I stayed one night at this hotel and especially the bed was lovely! Although the whole hotel was nice and clean, the bed is what I remember the most. Also very nice staff, excellent breakfast and good location.

Had a quite nice stay for one night in the middle of December 2014, in room 301. The room was large and modern, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom great. However, as the room was situated toward the railway track/-station just 50 meters away I was now and then disturbed by the noisy train traffic. The breakfast is served... More
