Close to center (30 minutes walking), big room, nice furniture, windows don't provide enough soundproofing even when you stay on a higher floor. The air conditioning is quite noisy.
Breafast room is big and breakfast is ok.
Parking is 7.5 EUR/day which is ok. There are 5 free parking places in front of the hotel but chances to get them available are reduced.
The spa (including indoor pool) entrance is 11 EUR (plus 3 EUR the robe and 1 EUR shower cap, both mandatory), which is quite much.
Ok if you stay here just for business.
