I stayed at the Best Western Palace for one night. It was great that it was literally right next to the railway station. The entrance seemed small and really didn't stand out. Usually most 4 star hotels have a bit more of a clear reception area, here you had to climb a set of stairs (not pleasant if you are hauling suitcases). I also felt the reception area and ground floor were a bit too dark.
The location- next to the train station at the edge of the pedestrian area near the central square. a nice location and good view in the evenings if you are on an upper floor.
the room- I stayed in a double room. it was clean and of good size. i got the feeling the hotel couldn't make up its mind if it wanted to be modern or classic. no place really to put your luggage. the bed itself was clean and comfortable, i did sleep very well here.
I came to breakfast quite early and staff was attentive and friendly. good selection of food. it wasn't exactly clear that eggs would be available until the staff asked you to select from a sort of menu. the omlette they prepared was quite nice.
bathroom- nice sized bathroom was nice and clean. towels seemed a bit worn for a 4 star hotel and like other reviewers have noted the shower practically required an advanced degree to operate.
in all a nice enough hotel. not the greatest value for the money but adequate for a short stay.
