            Art & paintings all over, good restaurant

            I think that the breakfast buffet is way below the level of the rest of the hotel. Also, we had to have 4 out of 6 light bulbs replaced in the bathroom - rooms should be checked between visitors.

            Great restaurant with delicious food, perfect location, only 3-4 minutes on foot to city center, very friendly staff who was extremly helpful to organise a special tour on short notice (although it was difficult to find a tour operator, but they managed to do so - great service!). We will definitely come back to this hotel next time.

          • Group of friends

            We found the staff enormously helpful both before and during our stay. We had overbooked, and they noticed it and sent us an E-Mail about it before we arrived. One day, the desk manager even offered to walk us to the restaurant we wanted to go to.

            It is a bit out of the center of town.
