We ate here after arriving from a tiring flight as we were staying in the hotel. The food was okay, nothing special (half the menu was microwaved!) and took a long time to arrive considering there was hardly anyone else there at the time.

Very limited choice, poor ambiance and poor value for money. Only go if desperate. We were there in December 2016

Good basic breakfast. Typical European fare with selection of cheeses and cold meats. I personally liked the coffee machine. Service was adequate.

Ate here twice, small lunch selection and average buffet breakfast offering. Light and airy, perfectly adequate but not somewhere to come unless you are staying in the hotel.

Can be better, if you are in business its perfect, for tourism is not the best as it better to eat in regular places

As a vegetarian I found the menu very dull. There is a nice range of bottled beers but you are better of eating elsewhere.

We were staying overnight in the hotel, and stopped by for a hopefully easy dinner with 2 kids. Waited for 20 min to get the menu (with two reminders), and then over an hour to be served. Nothing special, just pasta and burgers, they even refused to make the pasta plain, it only can come with sauce... Cannot comment on... More

A nice European Breakfast came with toast, croissants, french bread, yogurts, cheeses, hot scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, bacon, meats, veggies, cereals, and fruits. If you couldnt find something to eat, there is something wrong. Service was great, they were always filling things up and keeping them fresh. Would definitely have breakfast here again.

I had breakfast here. The food was great and service was good too. I like their coffee. That was the only hotel which verified your name from the room number.

Good breakfast buffet. Nespresso coffee machine and spacious dining area. Croissants, cereal, Ham bacon and sausages. The usual suspects.
