This is not a tourist hotel, the location is just on one end of a big shopping center, but that's all. On two sides is the highway, on the the third side the shopping center and finally a local road on the forth. The location is suitable if you drive a car and are doing business in the area.
The rooms are spacious enough. They have a television service (as other hotels by Thon) made to make you pay. You have to push a lot of buttons to get access to what you would like to watch. The most interesting channels are for free. The bathroom amenities are soap on the wall. Don't expect to find anything else. There is a hairdryer there. Room was clean and even thougt it was facing the hihgway not to noisy. Migth be another person would tell you the opposite because you could here the traffic all night.
As a small group we had ordered a three course dinner for the complete group. The first course (salmon) was soaked in lemon and you could not taste the fish. The second was supposed to be ducks breast, but turned up to be ducks leg (no problem with the taste). The last one was something looking like a panacotta, but the consistence was far from it. When asking for a wine suggestion the waiter answer was "I don't know". We asked the waiter to go to kitchen and ask the chef and finally we got a fairly good Italian wine.
The bar and restaurant area are in the middle of the building and the feeling is "cold". Not a place you realy want to stay for the evening.
Front desk was OK.
