              5.8

              The gentleman at reception is very friendly and very helpfull the location of the hotel is good

              The breackfast is very poor and service worse. The waiter is very unprofessional person and very rude with the customers.

            • Single
              6.2

              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.
