Firstly as we all know, the photos and the reality are two different things, and that was evident with Hotel Amaranten as well.
Rooms were dirty, smelled like mold and are really cold. Wind blows through the windows and headache was constant. After complaining about the issues we were having, the response from the reception was non-existent. And after complaining yet again in the morning, they promised to change our room for better for the evening. However after we came back later, this promise was accidentally forgotten. This pretty much proves that this place couldn't really care less about customers problems.
Breakfast was really busy, no matter what time you went. Bread was OK, but ever else was poor, so don't pay extra for it.
Location was convenient, and that is why I'll give two stars.
If Amaranten is the standard quality of Clarion hotels, I can safely say that you'll get easily better value for money from elsewhere. Almost 200€ for night is way too expensive.
