After my second visit to this hotel I can honestly say that the accomodation and the cathering is also perfect. The rooms are comfortable, clean, spacious and very silent. You can rest after a long day of business meetings or training session. There is separate bath tub and shower, a minibar that is for a charge, ironing facility. The continental...

This Holiday Inn wasn't my first choice and my boss lamented the decision to use a cheaper IHG selection after the fact and here is why. First, the good- rooms are clean and the people are friendly enough. As much so as you'd expect from a typical former eastern bloc country... The decore is inviting and warm in the building....

I have had chosen Holiday Inn as the fact that I am not really winter person and it was close to the office, in fact it's located directly at Business park and took me only 5 min to walk to the office. To describe the Hotel, I'd be using only superlatives. The room is spacious and cosy, well decorated. The...

This hotel is just really nice, close to the Business Park (really a walking distance). It is out of town and almost nothing is nearby, except an IMAX and some fast food restaurants. To be honest, I was lazy to walk more, because working a lot here. What I definitely recommend is to visit the pool :)
