    Great location, the breakfast was okay, nothing spectacular.

    Paid the hotel directly so I was charged a foreign transaction fee.

    Very professional staff. Very clean and spacious room. Good breakfast. Strong Wifi. Very super location, the second door is exactly in the walking street.

    Can't close the window, smell is spreading inside the rooms. The shower need more pressure.

    Nice location, parking available inside the building! Nice breakfast. Comfortable beds.

    There was no water in the house when we arrived after 25 hours travelling. Didn’t even get a bottle of water to wash teeth... Quite old hotel from the 90’, but new furnitures in rooms.
