Such a great hotel-clean and lovely room east check in and out ! The breakfast was delish and only 12 euro extra. The location was incredible right in the city and easy to walk to any restaurants on the main road

Liked the generous breakfast options, Clean rooms and evidence of sanitising throughout the premises. On-site parking available. Disliked the additional charge for hot chocolate as I don't drink tea or coffee!

Great room Great location Snack choice in room was great Free parking Everything went smoothly, the room and bathroom was clean and modern, The check in area was quite small, but not at all the hotels fault obviously. I only have 2 remarks, wifi was very very weak in the rooms, and having to give an extra 50€ at check in as “collateral” made us feel unwelcome. It made it seem like they expect childlike behavior from the guests, and will only return the money after having checked your room at checkout. But all in all, it was worth the price and would probably go back !
