Room: The room is modern and spacious. Bed is soft and comfy. (as opposed to some hotels that have hard beds) Toilets are modern. Cleanliness needs improvement especially in the shower room where there are signs of mold at the corners of the shower room (not too bad condition though, but do improve) Pros: The hotel has 3 restaurants, this...

Positives - check in and out was quick and efficient. Gym was spacious and fully equipped. Right on the lake with spectacular views if you end up on a high floor. Negatives - most of the staff seemed to be new or lacked any training. Often they seemed to be busy checking their phone rather than doing their job. Pretty... More

Second time I have stayed here. Rooms are modern, spacious and extremely comfortable. Bathrooms are large, with bath and rain shower. Breakfast buffet is varied and very high quality. There are two restaurant options. A German style restaurant and an international buffet, which ate both very good, particularly the buffet. Highly recommend.

One of the best experiences in our worldwwide network. Very helpful staff. Excellent rooms. The bar on GF is a bit noisy ( music too loud for comfort ). Overall good knowledge of the English language. However some staff are "chinese only "
