  • 6.0.Good

    Good location and staff were really friendly and helpful. I had a single room which was small but did the job. Only issue I had was that the single bed frame was very basic metal and skeaked with any movement. I am a really light sleeper though so probably not an issue for most. That aside I enjoyed the stay.

  • 8.0.Very good

    This hotel had the most uncomfortable bed. My husband and I woke up with shoulder and back pain. The hotel is in a very nice location, shops and restaurants are within walking distance. It would have been nice if the hotel offered shuttle rides to and from the train station, especially when the taxi went on strike. The receptionist told us that the taxi issue was not their problem. The bathroom is renovated, but too slippery for elderly. Breakfast buffet was decent.
