Very friendly staff at reception. Rooms are big, beds are comfortable, bathrooms are a little cramped. Great elegant rocking chair in the room. Well located close to the center, and a complimentary pass for public transport is a great service. However, we checked out early (flight connection), and weak up calls we had ordered were not made.....to add further complexity,...

Excellent breakfast on top floor with a good choice of anything you might need to get your day well started. Last but not least:...

Another one of our "one-nighters", we surely only scratched the surface of what this hotel has to offer. As others have observed, it is well located in pleasant surroundings and provides quick and easy access to the old town. The staff are friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed the typical Continental breakfast. The mini-suite proved a bit of an...

Stayed several days prior to a Viking river cruise and loved this hotel. Clean, Modern amenities, young and friendly staff that spoke English, and great location. A small bar next to the lobby for coffee or drinks. The location is key as it's far enough from the city center so the prices of hotels and restaurants are more affordable (Given...

Was close to public transportation but also close enough to walk to the old town or river. Very kind and helpful staff, room was nice although the bathroom was a bit small overall found it a good hotel for a short stay.
