6/10 Good

OK - University campus
Booked for 2 pe3ople but room only had 1 set of towels and only 1 mug for coffee. Tried to contact reception which has limited opening hours but the left 15 minutes before official leaving time - very annoying. Breakfast not available until 07:30 which is a little late.

10/10 Exceptional

Nice hotel, recommended
Nice and clean environment. Road signs leading to hotel is not sufficient, so it is not easy to locate at first search. Breakfast is not ready until 7.30am week days, so it is not suitable for those who want to eat and leave hotel early

Bon rapport qualité prix
Lieu très plaisant mais un peu éloigné de la ville. Très pratique pour les réunions à l'Univesrité ou au centre Européen. Je n'ai pas réussi à faire fonctionner le WiFi.
