Located just round the corner from the main city square so, arriving late, we dumped our bags and wandered the back streets of the centre (which are full of restaurants opening onto the pavement), to the grand place - a great place to sit outside and drink overpriced beer served by surly waiters. But what a location. The hotel itself is fine as business hotels go. The atrium and downstairs area is a bit 1980s USA style, and the bars etc in the lobby didn't look up to much, so we headed out. The rooms are super - very modern and quite chic. On the business floor there is a free drinks and coffee area on the landing and the 2 vital ingredients were there - free mineral water and free wifi in the bedrooms. Why more hotels don't have these basics I do not know. A pet hate is paying €$3-5 for a bottle of mineral water. Breakfast in the room was ok, but when you ask for coffee and no milk comes with it, is it me that is stupid not to ask, or the hotel that is dumb not to provide?
So overall, a big plus for a business hotel is location, the service is ok but nothing special, the lobby and public areas should probably be ignored (soulless), but the rooms are well above average.
