The hotel is 45 year old which means that it looks a bit outdated, but only by the design. the upkeep is well done! Excellent service from the front desk and especially the laundry who got me a shirt and a suit pressed in no time upon arrival. the executive rooms are so spacious, one could sleep in the bathroom!...

My profile and notes state specifically Non-smoking room. There were no other rooms available, which I find surprising. Given my status little was done to... More

The reception upon my arrival was very friendly and quick. I had requested the possibility for a late check out and the receptionist very enthusiastically and kindly proposed the option of checking out at 5PM instead of the standard 3PM, and made sure to mention that staying any longer would result in being charged for a half's day fare.
