Positive Reviews

A friendly and stylish hotel

The hotel enjoys more than its fair share of elegance. It is, though, guests feel, remarkably welcoming and very clean. The latter aspect is evident throughout both the public areas and the rooms and suites. Guests agree that the value received is excellent and that the hotel is a fine ambassador for the city.

Convenient for services and attractions

The hotel’s central location, which is also within easy reach of the city’s Central Station, is appreciated by guests. They also enjoy being able to walk to a number of visitor highlights and to a variety of neighbouring restaurants and bars. There is, in addition, a hop on and off bus service which is also close by. When it’s finally time to depart, guests love the fact that by using the metro and number 39 bus, the airport journey is very cheap and easy, with onboard instructions made in English. The hotel’s location is found to be really very convenient.

Food is a cut above the average

Reviews suggest the complimentary buffet breakfast offers plenty of choices and is enjoyed by guests. They also praise the later dining menus in the restaurant. The quality of catering is far better than guests expected.

Negative Reviews

It can be noisy

The hotel stages functions here, as well as live music in the restaurant. Guests say that the latter is great if they are involved, but not so good if they are trying to sleep.
