We stayed at this hotel for a weekend trip. It's centrally located, yet quiet at night (we were at 703). The complimentary breakfast is nice consisting of yoghurt, fruits, cereal, bread and croissants, ham, cheese, jam, salmon and herring, different types of eggs, bacon, beans and DYI waffles. Unfortunately, the breakfast room has too low capacity when the hotel is...

Reviewed 6 January 2014

Some of the rooms have a view INSIDE the hotel, so no view but you can see people having their breakfast. Hence, the light in those rooms is minimal. So choose carefully when booking, and ask for a room with a view other than this one !

Less pricey than other hotels in the area.
