The clientele here were mostly American tourists. While the hotel is modern and clean, the hotel staff is friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts are quite nice, these advantages don't outweigh the negatives. Namely, one is able to hear everything - and I mean everything - through the room walls. The other drawback is that the hotel is a 20 minute walk to city center, which is not such a bad shortcoming alone, but the lack of nearby restaurants is a deterrent. And when exploring all day, the hotel’s location makes it difficult to find good dinner options without resorting to eating at the hotel's restaurant or trekking all the way back to the center city. Other reviewers have commented on a few things that turned out not to be true. For example, there is no free shuttle from the hotel to the city; in fact, a previous reviewer was riding the public bus without a ticket (which carries a 200+ euro fine, if caught). There is no free minibar, even for platinum elite Marriot members, as the pricelist was clearly noted on the fridge and I asked. WiFi was only free due to my Marriott status. In the evening, limited appetizers (mostly fried finger foods) are offered, likely to entice guests to order drinks. The drinks are expensive, and despite what other reviewers have said, they are not free for elite members. I don’t think I got a room upgrade, either. I’m not sure I would really recommend this hotel – the paper-thin walls were just unbearable. If you decide to stay here, bring your hair conditioner -- an amenity that not provided, which is typical of European hotels.
