Stayed in a family room over Easter - great value for money! + Cannot fault the breakfast in this hotel! Lovely hot and cold continental selection and warm friendly welcome by the staff members every morning! Would highly recommend their muffins and homemade pumpkin jam! Really appreciated the tea/coffee facilities in the rooms, strong wifi, hot shower and cozy beds....

Before we arrived at the hotel the staff had been in contact both in response to my questions and to remind us of our upcoming stay. When we arrived we were greeted by fresh iced tea and a warm reception. There are lovely plants- mainly orchids- everywhere. We arrived at 2pm and our room was ready for us. In the...

+: The room is quite spacious and the bathroom was very clean. The windows are big so providing good ventilation but the mobile aircon in our room didn't really work. The breakfast offered sufficient variety. Staffers were young but courteous and helpful. Easily accessible from the city centre/ main train station by tram stopping at the front. Quiet and safe...

We stayed here for 2 nights, one of them New Years Eve, and the receptionist was very kind and helpful! It was in a pretty good location - from the train station you take the # 7 tram (which is just a 2 min walk outside the train station) and stay on for 4 stops to get to the hotel....
