Late check in for a shower and a quick sleep before continuing on E4 northbound. Simply a great standard of room. Awesome details, amenities, design, bathroom and atmosphere.

Stayed at the hotel over a weekend and was impressed by the genuine engaged hotel staff. The breakfast was wonderful and both the rooms and the hotel bar was very inspiring. Would highly recommend the hotel to anyone looking for more than just a good bed. Great!

I loved it since the moment I stepped on it <3 Nothing bad to say about it! Breakfast was absolutely amazing, had options for all sorts of diets, they count with a gym that was fully equipped, the sheets were soft, bed was super comfortable, and it was really really clean and tidy.

This is a fabulous hotel if you happen to like a steampunk-Jules Verne-inspired decor. It's easy to find, centrally located and not too expensive given its standard. I stayed here with a colleague during a work trip and we had a great time. The room was great, very comfortable and clean, wonderful bed and great shower. The internet worked perfectly,...
