I spent one night at the hotel. This was the first time I was there again after a break of 9 years, having been there before on several occasions on business trips.
Unfortunately I must say the hotel has deteriorated. It started out when checking in - an unfriendly and uninterested clerk.
The room (# 343) appeared clean but was definitely in need of refurbishment. Woodwork was chipped, there was a large crack in the tile flooring in the bathroom and the washing basin was in disrepair. No soap in the bathroom. Mouldy black spots in the shower.
Soundproofing is very poor - you can hear doors being closed outside the room. In the morning I was woken by my neighbour using the toilet.
Wifi is outlandish, paying 15 euros per day in the room.
Buffet breakfast is mediocre, the food in chaffing dishes luke warm.
Generally I got the impression the hotel management doesn't expect that guests come back again and is not really interested in the well-being of the customers.
