I had breakfast brought to my room, because I was leaving early There are options for a nice sit down breakfast that included eggs and a crepe or pancake. There is also a cafe/bakery right next door. If that does not suite you there are plenty of restaurants several doors down.

When booking with Grayline Bus, they'll tell you your pickup time. Our flight was at noon & we were picked up at 8:30 a.m. We had ample time but didn't feel rushed or anxious.

Hi does anybody know if this has a residence bar
Having now been to the Hotel I found you can buy drinks in reception but there is no bar. There is plenty of seating area to enjoy your drinks. Outside you will find plenty of bars and resturants. Many of the bars have happy hours which helps with the cost.

Is there free parking available at your hotel?
No parking at the hotel, we parked right outside on the street, it’s metered but wasn’t that expensive!
