This great little hotel is definitely value for money. It has really good tram links into the centre by number 3 tram (approx 10 min's) With hotel reservations you get a free travel card for use on public transport! Will be staying here on my return visits to the city in the coming months.

We stayed overnight in the Hotel Alfa. We picked the hotel based on proximity to the historic city center and to the port, where we were going to catch a river boat for a cruise. The location was very convenient to the city center because there was a trolley bus that stopped immediately in front of the hotel and took...

We stayed for one night in the Hotel Alfa and it was good. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The hotel is facing a busy street, so it was a bit noisy. The breakfast was reasonable, coffee was good and the staff friendly.

Comfortable modern room with above average space. We asked for an extra bed for our son which was provided. Nice TV and coffee machine provided. Quiet room when windows closed despite overlooking tramlines.Lovely breakfast and close to city and Bahnhof. Tram stop right outside which was convenient and free travel card was a bonus..

Good value for money, clean and very friendly staff. Simple, clean rooms, somewhat dated but with a nice coffee maker. Sufficient though nothing special, so good for passing through on the way elsewhere. Location is ok, parking for free. Tramlines right in front.
