    Friendly reception staff, and a nice spacious and modern room with balcony at the back overlooking car park. Croissants at breakfast were huge, and breakfast staff were very obliging and helpful. Felt more like a business hotel but suited our purposes perfectly. Parking was a bonus for our motorcycles.

    The hotel building AND the building next to it are undergoing construction works (from 6:00 am until 6:00 pm). This should have been comunicated upfront before any reservation is made.

    My only complaint would be the glass in the bathroom, which would allow anyone to see inside the bathroom from over one of the beds. Not sure for whom it was intended...

    We had a very nice, clean room. The breakfast buffet is decent but the staff is already extremely friendly.

    While easy enough to get to the sights via public transportation, it is somewhat distant and in a somewhat shabby quarter. We never found a good bürgerliche restaurant anywhere near.

    Very nice overall. Here in Austria smokers are everywhere, but they actually have a separate tower for non-smokers.

    Unfortunately this hotel has been refurbished only on one half. The new half is very well put together, clean and modern. The old half is a little dated, slightly smokey and with manual aircon that the receptionist didn't know how to work. I happened to be in the old half. The internet also failed after my first night. In my opinion the new half is 4 star, the old half is 3 star.

    Exceptionally friendly staff and excellent breakfast. The reception was open late and they were very obliging with my requests to unlock the gym and store my bag. Good location, walkable to the old town centre and the river. The gym was functional and clean with a lovely view.

    In general advertisement is not faithful to what is to be found - the structure is old and the pictures on booking.com are misleading . They claim a shuttle service to/from airport which was not available when I arrived ( they said for two weeks , a long time not to find a substitution for a downtown hotel ). General atmosphere was quite cold . Wifi worked badly , not constantly . The very area where the hotel is does not really look very reassuring , despites being close to the shopping and restaurant area .

    Staff was helpful and kind but a bit chaotic at times . You can reach the main road with shops and restaurant in some 10/15 minutes walk . Bed very comfortable. Breakfast ok.
