The hotel's position is actually perfect. Less than 10 minutes from the city center by car (and the local bus is also available, as well as taxi which is not that expensive) it's situated in the heart of the very nice shopping park and next to the very good aqua park. It has an outdoor and indoor garage (parking there will cost you 8 euros per day), but actually the better option is to park the car in the parking lot of the shopping park next to the hotel - it is free and as safe as parking in the hotel's parking lot.
The hotel is new and modern and it offers a cozy feeling from the moment you enter the nice lobby. Rooms are spacious, clean, with good beds and nice view, especially if you are from 5th floor on. The wireless internet (free of charge) works perfectly not only in rooms but in the whole hotel. In the lobby you also have computers (also online) connected to the printer, so you can print, again free of charge. In the rooms once will get everything he/she needs, from hairdryer to shower gel.
The entrance to the aqua park, if you are just regular guest, is free of charge BUT only for the regular swimming pool. If you want to use thermal pools, sauna and massage you have pay and you'll get 30% discount as a hotel guest. The massage must be booked a day in advance, at a hotel reception. Once you leave the premises of the aqua park you can't re-eneter them, or, you can but you have to pay again (and the free entrance is not an option anymore, you have to pay for the regular swimming pools too). Which option you want (regular or thermal pools, sauna or/and massage) you have to know in advance, otherwise it's a bit complicated to switch options once you entered the aqua park premises.
The whole hotel is non-smoking area, with designated areas for smokers.
The minibar in rooms is basic, but OK and recharged every day. The list of TV channels is good, but the cable provider is actually very bad, and every day the list of channels we could watch changed, which was a bit annoying. The bathroom is spacious and very nice.
The room service is bit slow and it happened twice during our stay that when we called the reception to bring bathrobes (free of charge too) they just forgot, so we had to call one more time.
At the reception, they are nice and very polite, but not quite sure about a lot of info - they don't know the timetable of the local buses, or the working hours of the aqua park, for example. Otherwise, they are willing to help.
The breakfast is very basic, but the quality of food is excellent. Only the coffee is the worst coffee I have ever drink in a hotel...
The gym is in the hotel, it's basic, but good, and you can use it whenever you wish (you just walk in with your room card)
