The hotel is located near St. Pieter’s train station, but far enough away not to suffer from the noise of trains. It is on a fairly busy road with a tram stop opposite the hotel. In about 8 minutes, tramline 1 takes you directly into the city centre. The hotel is very well soundproofed. Entering the hotel you will find the desk and a small bar at the left. Desk and bar are opened till 23.00 hrs. After that time there is no staff till the following morning and you have to use the night entrance to enter the hotel. The 45 rooms can be reached by an elevator. The hotel has its own parking.
Staff is kind and helpful. Check inn/check out went very smoothly. Previously sent e-mail was answered within 24 hrs. and my request for a quiet room was honoured.
I occupied room 103, which was very attractive and spacious. It has a large boxspring bed with a rather good mattress. The pillows are soft, but you can take a second one. There is a large cupboard with a mini bar and coffee/tea facillities. The room has an air-conditioner, which I did not use, and a rather large LCD-TV with many channels in different languages. Against the wall there is a large mirror. Wifi is free. The large bathroom, separated by a door, has a washstand (with all kind of amenities), a toilet and a bath with shower. To use only the shower is somewhat risky because of the slippery floor in the bath. Room and bathroom were impeccably clean.
The warm/cold breakfast buffet is on the 6th. Floor. It is really very, very good: a great variety of bread and sweets, several kinds of yoghurt, jam, cheese, meat products, fresh fruit, etc. Coffee from the coffee machine is good. Our breakfast was included in the price of the room. You can have neither lunch nor dinner, but there are several restaurants with terraces in the neighbourhood. I paid 74 euro for a double room single use (prepaid non-refundable) which is very acceptable.
All in all, the hotel is very recommendable.
