The only thing stopping me giving this hotel 5 stars is that you might feel that it is a little out of town. The buses are free but stop early evening, so you have to be up and plan your day in advance if you want to eat in town. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were

Dear Kateyktm, Thank you very much for this very nice review! I will see with the housekeeping about the sheets, because this is not our habits. Regarding the restaurant, the general manager and the f&b manager are already working on the atmosphere. I hope you will be back next year to see the new ideas! By the way, we will show you also another way to get into the underground parking without coming into the reception. It was a pleasure to have you with us and are looking forward to welcoming you next year. Kind regards
