    There is all we need: towels, free access of wifi and computers, a large choice of DVDs, nice breakfast, a laundry service, hot shower, clean rooms and very good roof terrace with the view on the waterfall. The staff is very nice. Just missing originality!

    Central located. Room service. Very clean and calm. Available book exchange and movie-library. Close to thermal baths and good restaurants (eg casa hood!) Try the breakfast on the top floor! WiFi-speed was ok. Staff is symphatic and can provide good recommendations.
