The hotel is also easily reachable by bus from city center or railway station. A bus stop is located very close to the hotel. Our room was spacious and... More

Everything was as indicated on the reservation & website. No surprises. Room was comfortable and clean. We paid for breakfast with our room reservation but the first morning we overslept & missed breakfast hours. The staff fed us breakfast anyway. We had a lovely time.
