The hotel is centrally located. The lady at the reception is very friendly.
Travelling with a group as only single traveller I was assigned room 11 directly at the restaurant. A very depressing, dark and smelly room. Then they showed the other single room, 1, equally depressing. Now I have room 23 which was originally for the travel guide. The room is directly at the parking lot and somewhat lighter than the other forementioned rooms. However, the light is blocked by the bus parked directly in front of the window. There is no closet for clothes. There is only very bright light at the ceiling, no light near the beds. The room is smelly. The old airco without remote makes a lot of noise. The shower is dirty: mould at the wall. The shower itself is ok although you can not regulate the temperature. Free wifi, which is a plus.
