Really great hotel for the money. Nice clean rooms. I faced the back which is not a pretty view but very very quiet and that is what I wanted. The view while not pretty was interesting. You could see people hanging up their laundry on lines to dry. Rooms (we had the superior) were very nice and very well sized for Europe. Fitness center was a nice bonus. Some free weights and bikes and tread mill. Free newspapers and lovely lounge areas. Restaurant was very good for the money. We had several coffees and meals there. The only exception was one waitress on a Sunday afternoon I believe it was who shuffled over to us with our coffee while talking on a portable phone. She served us cold coffee and when we told her she merely microwaved them which made them hot but taste awful. A shame since the coffee at the hotel is usually so good. Also staff seemed to have no idea how far locales were from the hotel. We were told it would take 10 minutes to walk to a restaurant when it actually took 30 minutes. We are fast walkers and did not get lost. There were a few other similar incidents. However over all I would give this hotel a very high rating.
