      • Nice view from the rooms and excellent hotel. Worth the extra money and the food and Service in the lobby bar/lounge is fine. The staff are very friendly and bathroom light and easy to manoeuvre in, good enough for 2. The breakfast is amazing.

        The metro stops at top, most sights are not that cloSe to metro and the old town is 5min by taxi. Spa and realx facilities look better on pictures than in real.
