My husband disagrees, he feels it's a 4* missing a few touches. Personally, I think there are a more than a few things that could bring this hotel in line with other 4* establishments.
Although friendly, reception didn't advise us of breakfast times, hotel facilities, city tax (we knew about it but not everyone does) or anything else - our passports were photocopied and we were given a key.
I realised that I didn't have my laptop charger and telephoned reception who didn't have the one I needed, problem was they didn't say that there was a guest PC I could have used - I found that out the day before we left from another receptionist.
There were no tea making facilities in our room. A small bottle of mini bar water was €3. Room was clean and modern.
The breakfast area was very old fashioned and the toaster doesn't work well at all - a new one is needed.
It's a good 20 minute walk to the train station for us and we walk fairly briskly.
Overall we had a pleasant stay.
