4/5 Good

The size of the room was excellent and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was OK but hot food could have been kept a little warmer. Negative was in the bathroom where it was a little awkward to have a shower in the bath and the water temperature kept fluctuating between hot and cold

My boyfriend and I stayed at the hotel for 5 nights just before Easter and we left the hotel very disappointed. The staff in the reception does not greet you when you come to or leave the hotel. They only talk to you if you talk to them. They sometimes have more people in the reception but only one will be serving guest which is unacceptable. They also did not help with anything relating to tourism, currency exchange and the city. Cleaning left our door open after cleaning our room so when we returned to the hotel after a long day we found our door open. I went to the reception and told them, was offered an apology but nothing else. Almost seemed like they didn’t care. We only got a very short call form a technician at noon the day after who had been told our lock was broken. Not true. Breakfast is on the tenth floor but not up to the standard of a four star hotel. Scrambled eggs dry and slightly brown. Oily fried eggs. Barely cooked bacon. Baked beans with hard beans. Hot milk container with almost cold milk. Overall really bad. We were also not asked for our room number at breakfast so basically anyone could eat breakfast for free. Not nice when you have actually paid extra to have breakfast included. The bed’s okay but the pillows were very high and uncomfortable. I came home with a sore neck. The location is was okay for us. It is a 40-50 min walk to the city center but very quick with public transport. There is a metro station right next to the hotel.

Great place to stay

The hotel is a $15 taxi from the train station and you could get there by metro for about $3, but we had a lot of luggage. It is right on the metro, so some may find it a little noisy. I thought it was a real convenience. No complaints.

4/5 Good

Very good value for money. We stayed here so that we could use the free parking. The tram stop is very near the hotel and takes you very quickly into the old town. You don't want to try and drive in the old town so staying outside and getting the tram or very cheap taxi in was fabulous. This hotel is across the river from the old town and is located up the hill from the lovely wineries and restaurants. The hotel itself is Very clean, has a restaurant on the top floor with great views, very good buffet breakfast and large rooms. We also had some cocktails in the little bar which were only 5 euro each. Staff were very polite, cheery and helpful. Wish we had stayed longer.
