I had a Carpaccio here and a chocolate mousse whit a glass of wine. Not to mention the atmosphere , music, design. Entire interior design is special A lot of wood , intimate atmosphere. I've stayed over night . The room , bed and bathroom are top quality. The room view was in a park. Wonderful!

The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was good with lots of choice. A fleeting visit to this town centre hotel but then setting is next to a pleasant park. The staff helped me by organising an enormous bunch of flowers with no hassle or expensive charges.

The hotel is very nice, is like a museum with many paintings all over the hotel. The food is great and the SPA was perfect too (it has pool and sauna). The view from the room was nice because there is a nice park in front of the hotel. You can take your kids in the park because is near.

Great hotel, nice rooms very stylish but at the same time vintage. Vary worm room very important especially at the time of our stay. Breakfast was also very nice not a lot of choice but delicious. If you are in the area would recommend it. A little on the expensive side but well worth it.

The hotel is near the park Zavoi. It is quite and clean. The room and bathroom are large size and are very cozy.
