The Good Aspects: The staff that checked us into our room was accommodating and helpful. The breakfast and dining area with large windows was warm and inviting. The location is AMAZING. The Cons: The main issue was the room. It smelled like mold/sewage and permeated our clothes...it was extremely noticeable when we returned home. The website pictures make it appear... More

3 of us stayed at this hotel in July, weather was hot and so was the hotel with AC only in the sleeping rooms. We asked for an extra pillow and the reception staff would only give us one if we promised to write favourable review on trip advisor, and he would not let us forget it. I also left... More

The only problem was our door didn't lock. The deadbolt locked, but when we left the room we realized you didn't even need the card key to get... More

We stayed in two rooms at the beginning of August and we were very happy with the hotel. Its location (steps from main sites, the tram and the tourist office on a lively restaurant street) and the view from the rooftop restaurant were the real drawing cards. As I was traveling with my mother, the advantage of this hotel was... More
