Stayed for 5 days being on business trip. We choose the hotel because of its convenient location. Room on the 6th floor turned out to be quite spacious, bed - of good quality. The unpleasant surprises awaited us downstairs - we visited the lobby bar quite late for 2 nights in a row, and discovered that some time after 11 pm with almost no guests around - there appear mice - to which the bar staff do not pay any attention which makes you think it's quite a usual thing to happen.
We were also struck by the reception personnel being quite laid back, slow in reaction and not very efficient - not all of them of course, but somehow the effciency ratio is 1:3 with the higher number on the negative side.
Another unpleasant surprise - taxi called by means of radio phone (or whatever it's caled) - arrived with the some EUR 9 already on the meter to which we paid attention too late. The driver barely speaking English, advised us to discuss it with our hotel who basically confirmed the rule- to our question why no one had warned us about it in advance - was no explanation. So beware - and if you need a taxi, there's a taxi point not far from the hotel.
