This place is awesome, I cannot fault this estblishment on nothing. The staff Sebastian, Daniela and Christopher are doing everything to make everyone's stay as pleasable as possible, very attentive, that you can see they know what hospitality job is all about. Tray their pizza, it is lovely.

I stayed here before and I had such a great time that here I am...back again! This time I was accommodated in different room but the standards haven't dropped not even a bit: clean room, very clean bathrooms for shared facilities,wi-fi connection very fast, Daniela, the girl from the reception was lovely as usual! Once i mentioned i got some problems with my back I was given extra pillows straight away.To conclude my staying was once again brilliant! I'll definitely recommend this place

I really liked this place. The room was basic but very clean,which was the most important. The Internet connection was pretty strong and free of charge :) The hotel is very close to the centre, there is a 24h bus just outside the hotel,so if you come back late you don't have to worry about the transport! The pub is ok, you can have a decent drink with reasonable price and the people are nice. Staff is attentive,especially Danielle,who gave me good tips and helped me whenever I needed something. In one word, awesome,I really liked!

My Company booked me in this hotel. It proved out to be a very good choice. I enjoyed everything: the room nice and comfortable, kitchen available next door, nice bathroom, I really liked the new showers, wifi connection was strong and very helpful for me. In one word everything was outstanding and I almost forgot to mention about the very friendly staff, especially Daniela- she was very helpful with everything. Thanks for a nice pizza;) I will definitely come back. I felt there very welcomed.
