I know....ignore 5 star ratings, but I really couldn't find anything to fault this hotel. I'm pretty stingy with 5* ratings. Granted, this is not a 5* luxury hotel but it is a great value.
Hotel is a quick walk from the train station. Maybe 5 minutes tops.
Greeted immediately and offered to store bags. Room ready when we returned. Stayed on 3rd floor. There is a lift. Bags were waiting in our room. Chocolates on the bed and two pieces of cake on the desk.
Room was spacious by European standards. Very clean. Comfortable bed. Ample storage for 2 people.
Bathroom was also good. First shower on this trip where water didn't go all over the floor :) good water pressure and hot water.
Breakfast was a delight. Made-to-order scrambled eggs, fresh strawberries, fresh breads. Even a nice selection of homemade puddings. Very, very nice.
Reception very friendly and helpful.
Maybe the only tiny thing is that if you are on the street side then you'll hear noise. But that's not the hotel's fault....we left our window open, but it never woke me up.
I would stay again and recommend to family/friends.
