Excellent value for money... particularly since it was the time of the Xmas market. In addition we got a special Xmas deal of one free dinner (it was a set menu with only one choice per course..but couldnt really complain as the food was fine), a free gift on arrival (local chocolate cake), a free drink and free city transport tickets for 2 days
Service was very good and the hotel was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a buffet with both hot and cold food, pretty extensive and surprisingly good for this price. Only 2 complaints here and extremely minor, i) as the hotel was very busy the dining room space was limited and although we managed to get seats ok.. the staff were very busy trying to keep up with the ever diminishing food and ii) the bacon was far too salty !!! Apart from that, it was all pretty tasty.
We knew that it was outside the city, but what wasn't mentioned on the hotel website was that the underground was only a 2 min walk (if that) with the new U3 terminal station at Gustav Adolf Strasse (follow signs for Tilly park to get to the hotel). To the Old Town the train only took about 5 mins, the Main station was just a couple of stops beyond...easy !
The one other complaint I would make... and have this with many hotels.... is being charged for the internet. This is a pet hate of mine. However even with that the Novina was cheap at €4 for a day via a net cable.
