The location of the hotel is very close to the public transportation, and it is few minutes to the tourist places (by transportation)
The rooms are narrow, furniture are old and corridors are not attractive, breakfast is medium,
the room was large enough , comfort .
room service staff has a problem with english language , they do not understand it very good , i was asking for Toilet shoes , they thought i need orange juice, after half a hour i spoke to the reception and they understand me .
I thought the staff were very helpful and looked after us very well.
The swimming pool area was "out of bounds" for two evenings because of weddings therefore the swimming pool and area around the pool could not be used by guests in the hotel.
The comfort offered by the hotel and the fact that the tram that take you into the city centre and beyond is so close
the internet service can be improved
Comfort room, clean, nice breakfast
Noise coming to our room due to reconstruction, re-novation of some rooms
\staff at the reception was rude, hot-water appliance was broken, yellow-brownish water came out from the faucet, calls to 'Reception' were never answered, dust on the bed boards, too thin walls
I did not like it
The Hotel has arranged to me a one day car with driver through a tourist office. I paid too much to that driver but the driver refused to take me to many places and his dealing way was very bad. I complained to the Hotel Reciption and they promised to solve this problem in the future.
Staff very friendly, very good breakfast buffet, wellness centre
Rooms are very small
"free" transfer cost 15EURO, but anyway nobody pick ap us from airport,
