It was an easy stroll to many shops and restaurants. We were given a room upgrade and it was a lovely spacious room, very quiet...

My room was spacious, bright, comfortable, and extremely clean. A generous and tasty breakfast is served in a quaint, very nice salon. Lena, who was at the frontdesk when I checked out, was not only kind but also relatable and insightful.

We stayed at Hotel Spalentor before our Viking Cruise. The location was perfect and the hotel was delightful. The hotel is located right beside public transportation and is in a charming area. The rooms are spacious and light filled. There was a delicious breakfast buffet. The hotel staff is friendly and very helpful.
