It's the fourth time that we stay at this hotel . The hotel breathes sophistication and class from the reception to the rooms however there are details that need attention, particularly in the maintenance field. For that reason I was planning to give a 3 however the bed and pillows are so comfortable and the room so sexy bringing the... More

The hotel is excellently located in the city centre opposite the railway station. Parking (12 €/24 hr) is next door and you enter the hotel directly with the elevator. As the name suggests black tones are the defaults for the very modern and elegant design throughout the hotel. Rooms are spacious with a separate but half open bathroom and walk-in... More

This is an absolute trendy hotel with a beautiful internal garden. The rooms cosy and provide you the promised experience. Unfortunately they are not quite yet there as various parts of the package either don't match or are not fully up to the same quality level like for example the sanitary fittings or the open kitchen only used to finalise...

Nice modern hotel from first look. Room also has a modern look to it. Some big issues though: check in is very slow and there is only 1 staff even during evening rush hour. Could be waiting for a while if more than 1 person ahead of you. Bigger problem: bed sheet was dirty with suspicious stain (see attached). Room... More

We had a very pleasant stay in this rather trendy hotel. Good location opposite the train station. There is a clue in the name Carbon - it is very black in the decor - which may not be for everyone, but it has style. Room was a very good size and plenty of space. Breakfast was not in the room...
