Almost a really good hotel but I had a room at the front which made it a miserable stay due to excessive noise from drunk students/clubs/deliveries etc. Far better insulation required !!!! Shame as bar was cool, rooms comfy and breakfast very good.

We liked a lot the bar/reception where drinks were reasonably priced too. Billiard was for free. Good breakfast. Only comment is on the attitude of the staff in the reception, not friendly nor welcoming, but am used to that in Belgium.
