    We did not get the superior double room we booked months in advance, instead it was a room with extra beds, No chairs, very awkward bathroom, stained walls and old very used carpet. Then, after we had gone to dinner the first evening, when we came back, there was no parking in their hotel parking. The staff had given us cards to use to get in and out of the parking lot, but did not tell us that many other people use their parking. So we had to search for parking several streets away, and walk back to the hotel in the dark. At breakfast the next morning (which is expensive), the service was rude. We couldn’t find some thing, so when we asked, one of the staff in a tall bakers hat, said in a gruff voice “it’s written in English, can’t you read ?”. Yes we can read, we just didn’t know where it was. We checked out early.

    Location close to shops. Grounds of hotel go right onto a nice little city park with a large pond.

    The rooms are a bit old fashioned and could do with a bit of an update. No air conditioning it was 30 degrees and if we weren't on a high floor, we were on the 14th, where it was breezy, it would have been unbearable.

    Beds excellent I'm not a good sleeper but I slept really well. The side of the hotel we were on overlooked a lovely park. All the staff were really helpful especially in the beer garden restaurant. The breakfast was the best I have had in a hotel and well worth the 18 euros

    The person at the desk at the arrival declared with unpleasant tone, that she speaks only English! Spa facilities had to be warmed up (!) and be paid 10 € per person. For a 4 * hotel this is not convenient (from time and economic points of view). Dirty stairs!

    The room we had for our a super-cheap offer was in desperate need of renovation. Naked senior men in the sauna/pool area made it impossible to go for a swim with my child. A sign requesting to use towels to cover private parts would be great if the hotel wants to have child guests too!
