This was a good experience. Attentive staff took special care of kids needs. Large double bed of king size (not made of two smaller beds!) was very much appreciated as the baby sleeps with us. Safe and comfy baby bed. Minibar available. Bathtub is appreciated as well! The room was not very large but very good arranged so there was a desk, small table and chair, locker, adequate area to place a baby bed and stroller, all our bags and still kids had a play zone. There is no water heater in the bathroom but the ventilation works soo hard...we were able to wash&dry in one night everything we needed for kids. Located in the center, it offers a great possibility to visit a large and beautiful Christmas market with kids attractions (we stayed in December). Wifi provided for as many devices as we needed was stabile and quick. Parking below the whole building (the hotel is a part of a big shopping mall) has a lift to the reception, which is next to the hotel lift and appears to be cheaper if you pay hourly: it was 7.50 for 17 hours. Breakfast served in a brasserie in the mall (no street walk required, few steps from reception) was outstanding with delicious fish, hot dishes, fruits, it is excluded from the rate but well worth it.
The conserns are: the hotel is really in need of renovation. Old furniture, bathroom, old and very loud ventilation (although effective).
While check in, you have no option to park outside as there is no designated area. More, arriving by car, you have to drive the whole round again as the parking entrance is a little behind and the street is one way.
Parking at the mall parking is a bit frustrating.
