I don’t usually have the time to write reviews, but Hotel Sporting was really exceptional. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean, and with lots of natural light and fresh air through the two large windows. I was most impressed by how thoughtfully laid out and outfitted the room was – lots of hooks, shelves, towel bars, and places to set things, and plenty of room for two people to easily share the space without bumping into each other. The hotel clearly cares about having high-quality basic amenities – an excellent shower, good radiator heaters, comfortable beds – without wasting time on decorative frills such as throw pillows. The wifi connection was excellent and free. The breakfast buffet was a rich feast of various local meats, cheeses, eggs, an entire table of breads and croissants, local jams, fruit, and so on, all presented in a home-style fashion. The owner was warm and welcoming and seemed to really enjoy running the place. We found it quick and easy to take the bus into the downtown area, and there’s also a great local restaurant, bakery, and grocery store within a few minutes walk from the hotel. Would love to stay there again.
