“Tries to be upscale, but misses...”
Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

I stayed here for two nights. When I checked in, they said I had been upgrades into a "Zen" room. Their spa is called Zen, and I take it this was some kind of cross-promotion they were doing to try to make the hotel feel more like a spa.

The room was very clean and a good size for Europe. The bathroom had been re-done in modern style. There was a very nice jacuzzi-style tub, but it had high walls and was a bit off the ground, so it was a bit difficult to get in... Almost like you needed stairs. There was something above the bathroom ceiling that kept making a loud, vibrating buzzing sound, that went off every 5-10 minutes, I could never determine the source of the noise, and when I was about to complain about it at 1:30 in the morning because it was keeping me up, the noise inexplicably went away and I didn't hear it the rest of my stay.

The shades in the room had about a 2 inch space between them, and the room I had faced east, so the morning light came in very early in the morning. Also, the walls are paper thin. You can hear every step of anyone in the hallway walking by, as well as every flush of your neighbor's toilet, every noise in your neighbor's room, and if they had their tv on, there was no need to turn yours on because you could hear every word of it.

The location was nice. It's at the base of the main hill going up to old town. If you have mobility problems and wish to explore the Old Town, I would not suggest this hotel, as the walk up the hill can be tiring, although to be fair I am a bit out of shape...

I don't eat breakfast, so I can't comment on the quality of the included breakfast.

When I went to check out at 5:30 in the morning, there were two people at the front desk. One was on the phone, and the other pretended to look busy. Although there were no other customers in the lobby, it took them approximately 5-6 minutes before they acknowledged my presence and then another 5-6 minutes to actually check me out of the hotel, even though the room had been prepaid...

All in all, the hotel looks nice and is very modern, but it's not very comfortable, especially if you are a light sleeper!

We booked Zen room but were upgraded to very spacious Zen deluxe with jacuzzi and coffee maker (nespresso type). The room had stylish decor - even our baby's bed linen was stylish. The hotel felt very relaxing. It was very close to old town, but still away from the old town noise and crowds. The neighbourhood was nice and there were big parks to relax in nearby. We didn't try the bar and restaurant, but inner courtyard summer terrace looked inviting. The rooms were nice and quiet. Breakfast was ok: nothing too special, but enough selection. Only one negative: there are very steep stairs in the main entrance which might require some effort with heavy luggage or strollers. Also, wish there were two duvets in the double room, not single one for double bed.

The bedroom was very small but very tastefully designed and remarkably quiet given the hotel's location on the corner of a main intersection. Breakfast was Ok though the orange juice is to be avoided. Mostly friendly staff. Great restaurant, and quality massage.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that looks on to the courtyard.

the hotel is very clean and tidy.the room although not massive was large enough to fit an extra bed.tv,internet etc. staff very very friendly and helpful. breakfast was very nice with plenty of choice.
although not far from the old town, it is a bit of an incline up to the old town, but taxi's are good if you don't want to walk.

The hotel is located very close to the old town. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are not big but cozy and well equipped. I enjoyed the breakfast.
The hotel is very good for the budget.
Tip: There is a hotel parking 15 EUR/day. It’s secured during the night. If it’s not important for you there are much cheaper overnight parking offers available around.

I spent a week here with friends. From the start, the reception staff could not have been more helpful.

I was lucky enough to be upgraded to a Zen Deluxe room which was amazing. The room was clean and airy, with a lovely view across the hotel's courtyard area.

Bathroom had a fantastic jacuzzi bath, although I would have preferred a fixed shower.

The buffet breakfast had a great selection and staff were quick to provide additional items when required.

The hotel was well located, a short walk into the town, and staff were always willing to provide recommendations and maps - they really made our trip special!
