      Breakfasts and the staff that attended us at these meals

      Yes, the house keeping was poor and we had to summons management at 17h30 one evening to get them to service our room. The secure parking was awful, we had to park on top of litres of human urine and wahtever else. The smell and hygiene is something you just cannot imagine.

    • Group of friends
      7.0

      The noise outside the hotel in the street needs to be addressed by the city councillors.

    • Family with children
      8.2

      The stay at the hotel was absolutely worth every cent. We arrived earlier than our check in time and the room was ready for us. The service we received was very good. The staff was friendly. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast, although some improvements can be made with the waiter service which was really just avarage. The buffet dinner menu was just average but our overall stay at the hotel was really nice. I would recommend the hotel to friends.
