The hotel is nicely situated just outside the very center of the town. Professional and helpfull staff. The owners have clearly forgotten what the main purpose of a hotel is; making sure the guests have a good night sleep. We stayed 3 nights. The first night we were given a room next to the elevators. At 5.30 the first guests started to wake up and use the elevators. It was like sleeping in the engine room of an ocean liner. The helpfull staff gave us another room in the other wing the next two nights. Unfortunately again streetside. Thanks to the single glazing (2013!) we enjoyed all the students brawling after their parties on the street until about 6 in the morning. That's when the busses and cars took over. The bed itself was too soft in both rooms. The bathrooms could use a revamp with the toilets (cheap plastic seats), sinks and showers all being at midget level. Breakfast was good. If I would come back here I would only do this if I could get a room at the backside of the hotel.
