  • Just one metro stop from the city and good value. Very helpful desk staff, comfortable room and pleasant bar.

    The location of the hotel is a quiet neighborhood not too far from the old town and the parking and the acces to the spa are expensive.

  • The location was nice, the hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly, girls at the reception were very helpfull. The room was clean and buffet breakfasts were awesome. Facilities were excellent.

    A little bit far from the new center, food Quality was very very poor and the shower was just ridiculous. The restaurant did not have sufficient choice.

  • Nice spacious public areas and good underground parking. Superb value for money, the building is very clean, tidy and well looked after, staff is nice, helpful and friendly. Room décor is modern, the worst Chinese meal we have EVER had, anywhere.

    To the old city and car park prices for guests is relatively expensive. The hotel is not the most renovated and food choice in the restaurant could have been better. Employees are not all very welcoming.
