We stayed in the hotel for a total of 4 nights. Here are my impressions:
Reception: Excellent. Very helpful, polite and efficient.
Rooms: Quite good but there are locked double windows and even though we were there in the summer we couldn't open the windows.
WiFi: Efficient and fast (and free).
Location: This is the problem. The hotel is located out of the center in a business area that is deserted in the evening. There is a shopping center close to the hotel and a few restaurants but they all close early.
Breakfast: Very good with a nice selection.
Other: We ate dinner once in the hotel due to the fact that we arrived after 8 and didn't feel like going into town. The food and service were good and even the price wasn't too bad (considering it was a hotel) but I was charged 2 Euros for 2 glasses of tap water! Never heard of that before and I was told by the waiter that was because I didn't other drinks! In other words I was fined!
