No hot water for a shower is silly. The staff blame it on the city that provides the hot water, which I googled but could not confirm. Breakfast was 19E and over-priced. The minibar well understocked. I'd look elsewhere.

Had a lovely stay, very welcoming staff, room was very spacey, clean and warm. Nice evening meal and happy to accommodate personal tastes and requirements but it was a limited menu. The 'try it' options on the menu were a good idea and were actually a good size meal in itself. Hotel walking distance to city centre and Christmas market.... More

We chose this hotel based on earlier reviews and weren't let down in the least. It is well located, just a 10 minute stroll from the centre of town. The folks on reception were extremely friendly and helpful -- a real delight to deal with. Our room was quite flash, on a corner with big glass windows overlooking the street.... More

The restaurant, bar, cleaning and front desk staff were all very nice! We had a few "special" requests throughout our stay and they did a great job providing for our needs! The apple basket was a nice touch, too!

This ultra-modern hotel caters a lot for business people, but the staff gave us weary motorcyclists a warm, friendly welcome. Our room was extremely comfortable with all mod cons - good night sleep and great breakfast selection - secure parking - 5 minute walk into the town centre.
