Generally, it’s a nice and modernly decorated hotel, trying to keep up with it’s 4 stars status. High-class and not overpriced restaurant adds up to a pleasant side of the stay (highly recommended!). The head of the staff Janis was especially sincere and helpful, giving additional charm to the experience. Breakfast, maybe not very rich from the first sight, proved to be unexpectedly tasty (selection slightly changes day to day and you are given a possibility to expand it even more by ordering some extras from the breakfast menu). Our room was big and came equipped with all you need for a comfortable stay (apart from fixtures) and had a big empty fridge. A/C unit was working effectively and we were using it as an additional heater.
But our visit didn’t start all that pretty. We chose a room with Jacuzzi, which proved to be a huge disappointment, because it was spraying pieces of dirt, totally spoiling the expected romantic experience. Bathroom itself was very cold and came equipped with a motion detector for light installed somewhere in the ceiling, so that light would go off every time you spent there more than 2 min and to get light back you need to be waiving hands frantically in all the directions for a while. What a strange idea! Bed was a bit too soft and night sleep resulted in an aching back. The corridors felt almost chilly enough to catch cold. After a failed attempts of the romantic evening and good rest, I tried to work (it was a business trip after all) but this wasn’t especially successful either. Light was hardly sufficient for reading, while for the wi-fi it took around an hour the first evening to establish a decent connection.
Despite all the shortcomings we came to like this hotel and wouldn’t mind prolonging our stay.
