    Excellent service, nice location. Silent, although the hotel is located in the city centre - at least we did not have any noisy neighbors :). Nice alternative for both family and business trips. Hope to come back soon!More

    Great costumer service! Delicious breakfast with an amazing view over the city. The style of the hotel very elegant. Clean room with a nice bed. The only minus was the temperature; the room was quite chilly even though the heating was on the hottest setting.More
