    The top location.

    I have known the hotel for a very long time. It is a pity that there is a bar on the ground floor which is obviously knew and very modern looking but makes so much noise at night. While the hotel rooms haven't been renovated probably for the past 20 if not more years. I would recommend this hotel but only for one or max two nights.
