“Best location in town, pretty decent prices”
Reviewed 22 August 2011

As the other reviews state this hotel is only 100m from the main square of the old town so very easy to get around from.
Our group had one suite and one twin, both of which were decent, clean, but not amazing.
Bathroom was a bit old and tired, but was clean and worked well.
They have a pool on 9th floor - it's nice with great views but very busy when we were there (at a weekend).

Room Tip: Get towels from the pool - 10x better than ones in your room

In the best location, 100 meters from the central square with the 3 bridges. Excellent service including parking your car plus english speaking personnel. Highly recommended. The breakfast was excellent

Stayed for a month on business before we could sort out a longer term apartment.

Food - room service is a bit dull but breakfast makes up for it (pancakes and fresh omelette every morning yum - although time it well otherwise you will be battling with japanese tourists!)

Spa - I didn't know there were that many types of sauna! Great stuff

Swimming pool - small but perfectly formed, great view out over the city if you can stand the cool air on the balcony after a swim

Beauty treatments - Had waxing and massage during my time here, staff spoke great english and I might go back for a massage even though I'm not a guest anymore

Rooms - I always seemed to get the same room on the 9th floor looking out over the three bridges, what a great view, huge room, big flat screen tv, huge bathroom with somewhat dated marble effect

Noise - if there was an event going on in the main square you could probably hear it. Was only an issue when they had late night music once

Location - perfect - it is exactly central!!

Wireless - not available in the far reaches of the hotel but reception staff can provide cabled internet instead

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the castle - my colleagues always seemed to be facing away from it, meaning a bit...

Situated within walking distance from the main square and old town. You can find nice restaurants (both local and international) near by.Very convenient for business trips.

We stayed here for one night, booking the room for about $150 on a special last minute deal. It was a steal at that price, however the hotel was not as miraculous as we had hoped (and read here on TripAdvisor). The rooms were large for European standards but again nothing to write home about. The gym was small but nice to have. The pool was also a nice plus. The thing that made this place was the location (5-10 minute walk to the train station and 1 block from the central square) and the breakfast (a huge spread, dozens of items, free mimosas, etc.)

The room didn't deliver the luxurious stay we thought but certainly did

The hotel is in a great location near to the centre and about 5 mins walk from the station. The taxi fare from the airport was quite steep at 43 euros for a short journey. It may be worth looking at alternative transfer agents or public transport if travelling light. The room we were initially allocated was a smoking one. Perhaps ask for a non smoking one in advance if that is your preference. We were switched to a large room with twin doubles which was very comfortable.

The staff deserve a special mention. Both the receptionists and waitresses at breakfast were friendly and very helpful. The hotel does lack character but the staff and location more than compensate.

Room Tip: Ask for non smoking twin room
