The appartements are big but not really clean... The bed and everything else in the room is very old and dirty. But beside that we had a few problems with the staff. First of all after arrival we asked the rezeptionist to please call us a cab. We said we'd like it in 10 min if possible, because we have... More

Dirty and poor maintained room. Bad internet connection, slow and bad coverage. Only the breakfast is at a decent level. Park to be paid extra. One day they even left rubbish in the room. Reception is closed at night, late check in automated but the car has to be left outside.

The apartments are marketed as "home away from home". The layout is fine, furnishings are old and could/should be replaced but still acceptable. What is not acceptable is that clearly no cleaning is done. I have been in the apartment for 2 weeks and twice a week 3 women come to change towels and empty bins, once a week they... More

The people like me who does not want to stay in very commercial and sophistication environment but rather in guest house sort of arrangment, this hotel could be a good one. Most of the rooms...
