Excellent customer service, both at the reception and at the two restaurants. The location is very good, it is close to the railway station and many other significant places. Rooms were very basic, but they were clean and at least in our room the bathroom seemed newly renovated. The only negative side is the breakfast room. It is very small...

Nice, clean hotel with large, spaceful bedroom. Quiet and not too hot to sleep. Perfect location only few minutes to the grand railway station. Restaurants in the same building. Also many restaurants, shops and pubs beside the hotel. Breakfast place was crowdy and a little bit hassle. Good breakfast though.

The room was nice and clean. We wanted a quiet room and got that. Two pillows made possible to choose the better one. Service at reception and breakfast was excellent. The location was also excellent, not far a way from railway station and shopping centres. Nothing to complain.

It was a great hotel with friendly staff. Everything was fine except the pillows. They were not good at all to sleep, so lumpsy and my neck hurt after waking up. We got back to hotel sleeping around 3 am, too tired to go and ask for another pillow.
