Pros: The hotel is very well situated for the Congress Halls. The rooms are a good size with a very comfortable super king size bed. Lovely big shower. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

Breakfast is excellent but then it should be at Euro25. Fast internet is free but it is not that fast. For the faster internet you have to pay Euro 9.00 for 24 hours. It's all little additions to a hotel that is not cheap. Would be nice for it to be included in the rate. I managed to find a parking space in the Hotel Car Park but I know lots of people didn't despite pre-booking.

Cons: Grumpy receptionist in the morning
6.3 Good
Pros: Free parking on the market square in front of the hotel.
Cons: The hotel had a brochure of a few things to do in the area but no one could tell us where the first site was located. Wait staff at dinner we’re not attentive, got my drink order wrong & just left me with it, food was overpriced and nothing spectacular & took forever to get anything delivered. Breakfast was also expensive for what was offered - I guess they offered some guests an omelet but not us. Also I was offered only coffee - no tea or hot chocolate. Need to train the staff.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Locatio is very nice, and there is a free parking on selected days in a week. The bed was very good, and in general the room was nice. The extra coffee in the room is a nice addition.
Cons: The hotel itslef is very nice, I would only complain that I paid for one fruit juice 5,40€, when you compare that to the price of the breakfast (14€) it is not realistic. Breakfast was good, but as the menu was not on every table I did not for example know that they prepare fresh eggs per order. This is something the waiter should have mention that. It would have been nice.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The rooms were warm, immaculate and comfortable with bath robes, toiletries and sweeties too - we really enjoyed our stay and we had such a warm welcome and lots of help. We will definitely stay again if we're in the area. The owner allowed us to leave our bags while we attended a show. There was an excellent restaurant near the location called Mezzo Mezza (I think that I spelt that right!).

3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Checkin was quick
Cons: The apartment was cramped and small. There was no ventilation and it felt stuffy with too much furniture for the size of the apartment.

There was no soap in the bathroom also.
7.9 Good
Pros: Super friendly staff and the free coffee and water was top for the room price.
Cons: The curtains didn't really block the light, and the showerhead leaked, not enough to be a problem, but it will need fixing.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Modern hotel located in City centre and only a stone throw away from the main train station.

6.3 Good
Pros: Stuff was ok at the reception.

Wifi connection was poor and down lots of times in the evening so I was not able to work comfortably from the hotel. Towels were missing one day for no reason after cleaning my room. Stuff sometimes does not speak enough good english.
7.5 Good
Pros: Nice place

7.1 Good
Pros: Central location close to main railway station!
Cons: Price for a single room was over 50 euro and I would say a bit expensive for a solo traveller!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything, location, staff, breakfast was fantastic! Thank you a lot.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: After complaining about the maggots, and after convincing them that we would not sleep in a room shared with a menagerie of animals, the managment moved us to cleaner rooms.
Cons: Considering a bedroom door that only opened one quarter and sheets that were not perfectly clean, that would have been siglthly annoying but borderline acceptable. MAJOR ISSUE: a colony of weird fat maggots living in the curtains!!
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Location
Cons: Room and bed was terrible
7.9 Good
Pros: The breakfast is included in the price. Nothing fancy (scrambled/poached eggs, sausages, beans, vegetables, muesli, waffles, coffee, tea, juices), but good enough to start the day. The room is small but neat and clean. Good value for money.
Cons: There was a lingering smell of tobacco in the bathroom (nothing terrible but can be annoying if one stays several days). As if people were allowed to smoke in the hotel in the past. The hotel is doing some renovation, so it might also be possible that the smell comes from that.
