This is at the edge of the old town opposite the Forum Cinemas. Near the Autosta bus stops (not to be confused with the Autosta - bus station - itself) so easily reachable from the airport (both the 22 and smaller 222 stop there).

I chose this hotel because I like staying in modern contemporary rooms. The booking websites only show you the modern rooms, not the "classic" ones. When you arrive the try to push you to pay an extra €10 to upgrade your room and even try to show you the difference between the rooms when you say no. The actual standard... More

Bus from the airport takes you to the perpendicular road. Room was very large and clean, wifi in the room and we had breakfast included which was standard continental buffet breakfast.

We stayed for three nights and had two rooms. Both rooms were newly decorated. Love the bed. It was quiet and the hotel is just across the street from the market and the bus stop from the airport. We walked everywhere as the hotel is literally located on the entrance to the old time. The restaurant is like a gastro... More
