“Exactly what I expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Novotels are never the most charming, but the hotel was clean and comfortable and the room was spacious for the middle of a city. I didn't get to try the food. Very close to the university. Great for business -- not for a romantic getaway but you knew that.

Room Tip: Go for a high floor for some very nice views

I've paid a very fair price for a one night stay in a single room. The interior of the hotel is modern. This goes fro the rooms, reception, hotel bar and restaurant. The food I would rate good to excellent on both breakfest and diner.

We have paid 130 Euro for two nights in the double room. It was great value stay. Rooms were quite spacious, clean and comfortable. Bathroom is equipped with bath tube. Every room has wired Internet connection and wireless as well.
The best for me was breakfast – extremely rich, with two kind of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, pancakes, different kinds of cheese, fruits, marmalades, many kinds of bread and croissants. You can also enjoy quite good coffee, tea and drinking chocolate.

It is much better idea to travel by public transport, because parking in the city center is extremely expensive – € 3.33 per hour. During your stay at the hotel, you can leave the car free of charge on the street and at the hotel parking.
