    Friendly staff and a wonderful location.
    • Leisure trip

    • Double Room
    • Stayed 3 nights

    Bed was hard, breakfast costed 8 Euro, Shower needed repairs. Me and my partner heard sex multiple times (thin walls). Mediocre cleaning. If you stay here for more than a week you will become bored; stay for maximum 3-5 days since a tax is added of 4.31 Euro so be careful. Don't eat the breakfast (it adds tax). NO WIFI! "it was broken"

    Friendly staff and a wonderful location. The key system is good and secure. Overall security is pretty decent. Location of hotel is perfect, close to everything you will need. If you're planning to stay most things are quite cheap so you'll find yourself buying a lot of things.

    The pincode for the entrance was written on a hotel business card - who takes it? Of course, I forgot the card in the room and took only the key, then could not enter the hotel after the reception was closed, and had to call to ask the PIN. Why not to stick the PIN to the room key?

    I had a train at 5:30 am, so it was the best location to reach the station in a couple of minutes.
