The first thing you notice upon entering is the dark woodwork, mirrors and brass fittings of the reception and restaurant area... this is an attractive hotel (except for the horrible glass and steel fire doors - couldn't they have used something more in keeping). You even get a proper key with a huge brass keyfob which I liked (although leave it at the desk rather than carrying it around - it's heavy!). The room was decent - although small for my tastes - with two single beds pushed together (why don't hotels then give you a double duvet instead of two singles?) a desk, wardrobe and elegant minibar with flatscreen TV. The only thing I did miss was an iron and ironing board, which you cannot get but they do provide an ironing and laundry service.The wireless and parking rates are very reasonable at €5 and €9 a day respectively and the minibar prices are almost a bargain; €3.50 for a large bottled beer. The bathroom is light and spacious, with white tiled floors and an excellent shower. The aircon is possibly the best I have ever experienced, cooling the room from 27 C to 20 C in less than 5 minutes - but then it was small. Also, the windows opened in both bedroom and bathroom which personally, I love. I much prefer fresh air to recycled, dried out aircon! The old town is a ten minute walk and there are plenty of eateries within the same distance. I didn't eat at the restaurant in the hotel as I ate out with local colleagues but the menu, wine list and ambience all looked very good. Overall though, the thing that stayed with me was how helpful all the staff were... this is a very friendly hotel - recommended.
