From the minute I walked in, with 'recognition' that I had stayed in this hotel in the past (about 3-4 years ago) by the very friendly staff, to the completeness of the spacious rooms, and the great location towards the city center, but also roads for fast transport to other parts of the city, this hotel was excellent. I only like to recommend to bring ear plugs, as the fan in the bathroom makes a lot of noise and I couldn't figure out how to switch it off. With my ear plugs in I had a great night sleep.

The hotel was named after the Spalentor (historical gateway tower) which is just across the street. We got a spacious and clean room. We liked the balcony and the view of Spalentor. Unfortznately there was a bell tolling every 15 minutes, even during the night and I could not sleep until 2am. The hotel would require soundproof windows. The breakfast was really good. The staff was friendly and helpful.
