The hotel is a bit old fashioned, but quite nice. We had a good sized room with a big comfortable bed, mirrored wall, big flat screen tv, sofa and a separate walk-in closet. The breakfast buffet was very good.
Only a few problems: the entire hotel was really hot. True, it was unseasonably warm for October, but when we wanted to turn on the airco in our room, we were told that they had switched from airco to heating and it was therefore not possible to cool the room, so we should simply turn off the heat. We obviously already did that, but it remained very hot, even with the window open (and as we were unfortunately on the street side, it was quite noisy).
The reception desk is in a small space by the front door and always crowded so not easy to get the staff's attention (use the phone instead!). Note too that wifi does not work well at all - very intermittant service throughout the hotel.
