“Good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Great location, only an 8 mins walk to central station. The hotel is clean, staff are ok. The rooms are tiny. Do not expect any cream, seperate shampoos or shower gels. In the shower cubicle you get shower gel/hair wash combined in one and at the basin a simple liquid soap. There are no soaps or creams given. The mattress is probably the worst i have ever slept on.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

it is a lovely hotel in a very good location. BUT.. the rooms are quiet compact and although we had a double room we really had a double base with two single mattresses (that kept falling off the bed during the night) and two single quilts. Our room was also located next to the lift so we heard the lift moving up and down 24hours which interrupted our sleep. We was then woken at 9am and 9,30am by housekeeping even though we didn't have to check out until 12pm. On checking out when the receptionist asked if we had enjoyed the stay and we told her about the interruptions she was quiet rude and became unhelpful with leaving our luggage in there designated room..

Room Tip: dont saty near the lifts

Very nice hotel, good location, nice and helpful staff.
Only negative thing is that it is some overpriced.
Include the breakfast in the price. Clean and quiet rooms. Easy to find, hopeless to park there.

I can't say enough about this place! just a few minutes from the central station, it is a gem, and the price is right. Our room was funky and clean, the staff were incredibly friendly. They even brought us a bottle of wine when they heard it was our honeymoon.

We did not have the breakfast but really wish we did - if you book early you get a few euros off - bonus.

Check in and out was easy with no hassle, and the front desk got us discounted fare to the Van Gogh museum AND we got to skip the massive line.

After checking out I realized that I'd left my ipod in the room and did not expect to find it. I emailed the hotel just in case and the manager made it her personal mission to track it down. Even though the room cleaning staff did not find it, the manager went in nearly a week later to double check and found it behind/under the headboard, and shipped it to to me in the UK.

Definitely stay here, the price, the staff and the location will make it worth your while!

Nicely renovated hotel- clean, modern rooms and very friendly staff. A really comfortable bed, large bathroom with an excellent shower. The breakfast was a really good buffet. The hotel is situated close to the station in the centre of the city.
I would certainly stay here again and recommend it to friends.

Excellent location, good service, clean room, fast and free wi-fi. Everything that really needed was in room. Breakfast was tipical for such hotels, not bad, but nothing's special. Good European 3* hotel. Bathroom has glass walls - somebody can find it important and strange, somebody - doesn't care.
