Breakfast is excellent but then it should be at Euro25. Fast internet is free but it is not that fast. For the faster internet you have to pay Euro 9.00 for 24 hours. It's all little additions to a hotel that is not cheap. Would be nice for it to be included in the rate. I managed to find a parking space in the Hotel Car Park but I know lots of people didn't despite pre-booking.

6.3 Good
Pros: Free parking on the market square in front of the hotel.
Cons: The hotel had a brochure of a few things to do in the area but no one could tell us where the first site was located. Wait staff at dinner we’re not attentive, got my drink order wrong & just left me with it, food was overpriced and nothing spectacular & took forever to get anything delivered. Breakfast was also expensive for what was offered - I guess they offered some guests an omelet but not us. Also I was offered only coffee - no tea or hot chocolate. Need to train the staff.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Locatio is very nice, and there is a free parking on selected days in a week. The bed was very good, and in general the room was nice. The extra coffee in the room is a nice addition.
Cons: The hotel itslef is very nice, I would only complain that I paid for one fruit juice 5,40€, when you compare that to the price of the breakfast (14€) it is not realistic. Breakfast was good, but as the menu was not on every table I did not for example know that they prepare fresh eggs per order. This is something the waiter should have mention that. It would have been nice.

Pros: The rooms were warm, immaculate and comfortable with bath robes, toiletries and sweeties too - we really enjoyed our stay and we had such a warm welcome and lots of help. We will definitely stay again if we're in the area. The owner allowed us to leave our bags while we attended a show. There was an excellent restaurant near the location called Mezzo Mezza (I think that I spelt that right!).
Cons: We are gluten free so breakfast was a bit limited - but we should have made contact so it was our own fault. Good coffee and our other colleague who was not gluten free enjoyed her breakfast very much.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Checkin was quick
Cons: The apartment was cramped and small. There was no ventilation and it felt stuffy with too much furniture for the size of the apartment.

There was no soap in the bathroom also.
7.9 Good
Pros: Super friendly staff and the free coffee and water was top for the room price.
Cons: The curtains didn't really block the light, and the showerhead leaked, not enough to be a problem, but it will need fixing.
