After hearing lots of great reviews about this hotel, we thought we'd try it. The price was very reasonable, maybe that's why some parts weren't so good.

I spent a few nights in the Hotel Anel and they were very enjoyable. Staff goes out of their way to make sure your stay is comfortable. Biggest beds I've ever seen. Hotel is full of art and quiet. Breakfast is nothing special but adequate.

Hotel Anel is understandably popular. It offers a classic mix of 4 star business hotel and a very affordable price. Everything is top quality, from the gym, pool and spa, rooms, location, friendly staff. An added plus for art lovers is much of there lobby and corridors are decorated with paintings and sculptures.
