Rooms are clean and spacious, only minus is that you have a nice bog TV screen but very poor reception of the different TV... More

The hotel is nice, more a reasonable 3*** than a 4****. Rooms are renovated and comfortable (I got an apartment on the back of the hotel: the room was excellent, big, modern and clean, the downsize was the need to walk outside to get there). Reception and other common areas are not very nice and a bit outdated. Not a... More

This hotel is a nice place to stay on a short break or sight-seeing holiday. It is within an easy walk of the main station and cathedral and very close to an underground tram stop at Heumarkt with a direct line to the main terminus.
