We were very satisfied with our stay. Clean room, nice lobby, fast wi-fi and excellent breakfast buffet (the scrambled eggs with the zucchini was fanstastic :))... One small disappointment - they make a "tourist-size" coffee for breakfast - a size too big to be really excellent. But if you are into it, you will be happy.

Do you refer to the AMERICAN COFFEE? By the way we are really happy that you enjoyed at most your stay! hoping... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights in early June. Firstly, parking was not a problem in the hotel's street. One side is paid parking, the other side is free and we had no problem in getting a space on all 5 nights. The hotel is very cool, tastefully decorated everywhere and the staff are really friendly and... More

Firstly don't stay at this hotel if free parking was one of your main aims. There is free parking on the street outside but it's only a few spaces and they were all taken. I would advise take up the hotel's offer of €5 per night in their own car park up the road. Then enjoy really nice hospitality, staff... More
