The Hotel was very central with a very short walk to the attractions. It had been refurbished approx 1 year ago. The hotel was warm and comfortable. Our small room was clean, attractive and comfortable with good facilities. Lift to all floors and a good breakfast. The staff were very informative and helpful. We arrived earlier than the booking in time, but the staff booked us in and we went to visit the Christmas market that was within a 3 minute walk of the hotel. When we returned our suitcase had already been taken to our room.
We booked a small room as we were only staying one night, Any longer I would want a larger room, as it was a bit too small. No view from the 'frosted' window. Our room no. 206 was at the back of the hotel, but sounded as though it had a motor running in it. We checked the fan in the bathroom and the air conditioning, but these were turned off. It was very annoying, it sounded as though we were travelling on an aeroplane. I was undecisive as to wether to ask for a different room, but as we had already unpacked and was only staying the one night, we decided not to raise the matter with the hotel.The 'noise' had stopped when we returned from our evening meal in an independant restaurant later in the evening. At checkout the following morning, we were asked if we were pleased with our room and we informed them of the noise. The manager said it was the kitchen fan. Because we had already checked out, we were asked if we would like a complementary cream tea as compensation. We had planned to take a bus tour of the city and so returned later for our cream tea.
