We stayed for three nights in November, and chose the hotel mainly for its price.
The best parts of this hotel are:
The breakfast (4/5) and the location (3/5)
While the worst parts (in our experience) are:
The service (2/5) and the check-in (1/5)
Let us elaborate on those last two. When we arrived around 8 AM, on a cold, rainy November day, the receptionist at first seemed very bothered by our arrival. He then even suggested that we leave the hotel and come back in the afternoon, since they were fully booked. Approximately 30 minutes later, he was relieved by a colleague, who immidiately got us a room. So, unfortunately, the behavior of one particular receptionist kinda ruined our whole arrival.
On the first day we hung out the "DND" sign, which was snatched by someone during the night, resulting in an unwanted visit from the maid. We kindly asked the reception to call the housekeeping and tell them we didn't want to be disturbed on the following day. Anyway, as we got up for breakfast the next day, we asked yet another receptionist to do the same thing - which he said he would. Some 30 minutes later housekeeping was banging on our door, asking if we needed cleaning...
Apart from these annoyances, it was a pleasant stay. It should be clarified that some of the staff members were extremely polite and helpful, while others... Well, see above.
