have often taken small Groups to this Hotel in the last 3 years and was always happy about this decision. Sure - the building is old, you can hear some of the doors, in many bathrooms there are still bathtubs with showers, so a bit difficult to climb in - BUT: a very good Price including really good breakfast, staff...

As per usual, the negative reviews left for this hotel had me expecting a visit to Josef Fritzel's underground basement for the weekend - OVERDRAMATIC. The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. Budget hotel, right? So it bothers me that all the negative reviewers are expecting something other than this. Good alternative to a Holiday Inn/Travel Lodge, 5-10... More

I knew I wasn't in for luxury when I booked this hotel, but I wasn't prepared for this dump. The reception staff were pleasant and friendly, but none of the other staff we saw were.

From previous reviews you already know that rooms are quiet dated and you cant really expect much for the price you pay.
