    Very dirty Very old Breakfast: Only sweets Parking spots: The first night we had a (very small) spot in front of the hotel. The second night there was no space. Parking was included, but had to park 500m away at a payed parking and had to pay ourselves.

    The location is in the old center.

    For a solo 2-day football trip, it was dead handy, but I wouldn't stay as a couple or family.
    • Solo traveller
    • Twin Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    Breakfast was basic but ok. But the room, oh, the room. A cell. 2 very basic twin beds foot-to-foot along one wall, an old TV with bad reception, loose wires, flaky paint, bathroom well past its best. A lot of noise from other rooms and the corridor.

    Friendly staff, clean enough, and an excellent location. I was there for a football match and the hotel was down a quiet street, but in the town centre, and just round the corner from the main square.

    Check-out time was at 11am but the staff couldn't wait to see us leaving the room and telephoned us. We knew the time of check-out very well so it was unnecessary and a little annoying. There was some kind of reconstruction at the kitchen so we were not able to enjoy hotel's breakfast.

    Friendly staff, so nice to have a breakfast put on onsite rather than the coffee & croissant at the local like so many do, got lent an adapter for my recharger which was kind, not spotless but cheap and cheerful and I was really happy here.
