We booked a 2 bedroom apartment which can accommodate a maximum of 5 adults for 6 nights. The apartment has a full kitchen and located around 15 minutes to the center and very accessible to public transport. It included a free light breakfast. The service in the breakfast room was prompt and friendly. There is also a pancake machine, which was quite popular for all ages, although it broke down once in a while. The booked accommodation also included free internet access - but this depends on the type of booking made. The hotel is also very near restaurants, cafes and shopping areas which made it convenient for self-caterers.
One night, we were awakened abruptly by the fire alarm. We thought that we might have triggered it, and after contacting the reception we were requested to leave the building via the stairs. It was quite a shock. A lot of people were already out on the street and the fire brigade has already arrived. Apparently, it was just a false alarm, so we were allowed back to the building after about half an hour. It was amazing how well the whole affair was managed - no panic at all.
We can surely recommend this apartment hotel to families.
