The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was good with lots of choice. A fleeting visit to this town centre hotel but then setting is next to a pleasant park. The staff helped me by organising an enormous bunch of flowers with no hassle or expensive charges.

The party was all over with his 120 decibels. I believe that nobody was able to sleep normally. Not nice and without any respect for the...

The hotel is very nice, is like a museum with many paintings all over the hotel. The food is great and the SPA was perfect too (it has pool and sauna). The view from the room was nice because there is a nice park in front of the hotel. You can take your kids in the park because is near.
