    We spent 1 night at the hotel. Lots going on right outside the hotel which made it convenient without a car. The bed was really comfortable. The staff super friendly. The breakfast was pretty good - the coffee delicious.

    Hello, breakfast starts at six am and if you want to check in earlier I suggest you contact the hotel so they can personally see your date of arrival and reserved room to accommodate your needs. Kind regards, Alessandra
