The hotel have the best location and huge rooms and bathrooms. Only complain would be that - the AC is kind of noisy and the pillows are all same and very high. Maybe something to think about to include - a pillow menu?

Hotel is in the city center in walking distance to most of the sightseeing points. From our event to the hotel we walked around 15 min at 2 am. Not in every european city you can do it. You can find a lot of places for food (not expensive and close to the hotel).

The room was spacious and luxurious, clean and comfortable. Amazing value for money. I have absolutely no complaints. The following day...

Enormous room with hallway and spacious bathroom with bath and power shower. Very clean, central location. Staff were friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Breakfast is very good too, but on the expensive side, at 19 euros.
