Pleasant hotel with friendly helpful staff. Our Ryanair plane was 3 hours late but I contacted hotel and they assured me all would be well. Checked in at 1:00am. Hotel was comfortable, friendly, breakfast was fine. The decor looked a bit "tired" but small worry in a good hotel. Location is good, not too far from station but also close to the centre

I stayed here in summer time, amazing spot in a central location. Comfortable beds, yes it's an older hotel, but it's also an older city. Really friendly staff and good breakfast w a peak at the canal. Supermarket walking distance, train station, and of course all the other things you are coming here for.

We were a big group of guys and we needed different rooms, the staff helped us do the booking online and they were really helpful when we came. They gave us flexible check in times and nice recommendations. A part from that, the place was clean, tidy and very centric!! Would recommend!
