Room was quite and clean with comfortable bed, although a bit small. Breakfast was very nice with quiet many selection of food. Location is close to the center of the city. However, not all their staff were friendly.

The front desk staff were very nice and extremely helpful. They gave me directions to the red bus tour, and recommended a really great restaurant for dinner. We had to leave super early to catch a train,so they reserved a cab for us, and made sure that the breakfast staff knew we would be eating as soon as they opened.... More

The hotel is perfectly placed to explore the city centre, shops and harbour areas. It is simple in style, but very pleasant and clean. The breakfast buffet is really great with a surprising range of hot and cold dishes. There's no restaurant in the hotel, but there are countless places to eat and drink within a very short walk in...

Although this hotel is conveniently, it was less than comfortable to stay there. It seemed to be newly renovated, but the materials used where very inexpensive. Sound traveled through the walls and doors, no hairdryer, inadequate heat, and the shower consistent of a shower head and a curtain in the bathroom. If I wanted to go camping, I would have.

I stayed in the Thon Cecil hotel in November 2013. The location of the hotel is fabulous, with great walking distance to the downtown area & transit. The "window" of our room looked out into the center courtyard, which was the breakfast atrium on the ground floor. The breakfast was large with a lot of variety. My personal favorite was... More
