  • This is definitely not a 4 star hotel - closer to 2 star. Also, do not let the staff try…

    We didn’t get the room that we paid for. We booked a family room for 3 and was provided a room for 2. No daily room service. While there was no in-room tea or coffee, you could get hot water from reception area which was then a long walk back to the room. Customers were regularly complaining and yelling at staff in reception area and staff appeared rude and didn’t seem to care much.

    Cosy in a fantastic location

    The hotel was located perfectly for our stay. High floor river view for NYE. Surrounded by lots of restaurants bars and two big shopping complexes. Our biggest regret was booking a meal for NYE in the hotel at a cost of €70 pp! This was absolutely not worth the cost. It was buffet style, limited food options with no table service or entertainment. Very disappointed. Breakfast was was satisfactory. The hotel is just slightly dated inside and in need of some renovation. Two things for us were the fire pit around the pool area not being on. No ambient music and the sauna only being available 1700 til 2200. We would also of appreciated our balcony being cleared of snow so that we could of used it fully.

    Good experience

    The hotel is located in a great location. The reception were helpful and friendly. It is a good place to stay at Christmas. But book very early for a good rate, probably 4 months or 5 months prior to your trip.

    I thought the place was scruffy and the service at breakfast was terrible. Sometimes couldn’t find a place to sit as tables had not been cleared. Best thing about the place was it’s proximity to the Santa express bus

  • 8.0Very good

    We enjoyed our stay. The room wasn’t what the website said when we booked it, but it worked and we had a good stay. We booked a family room where we were supposed to have two single beds, a double bed plus a double sofa bed. We didn’t get the double bed, just the two singles and the sofa bed. Anyhow, the breakfast buffet was amazing. One of the largest selections I have experienced as a free breakfast with the room. There was a bus stop right next to the hotel which made getting to the Santa village, Santa Park, and the airport very easy with Santa Express Bus. The hotel had a sauna and a pool. The water in the pool was too cold for me though. The downtown was a quick easy walk away so the location was very convenient. Overall I would recommend this hotel.
