Everything was good. I would definitely stay there and recommend this hotel. There was only one thing I didn't like was the shower over the bath. It wouldn't keep straight so the water went to one side. To be fair we should have reported it. But every thing else including service was very good.

Nice modern hotel near train station. Very helpful staff on reception. Daughter had an ear infection and they helped us by ringing medical centre and it was all dealt with.

Meitä majoittui kolme samaan huoneeseen, mutta hammaslaseja ja kahvikuppeja oli vain kahdelle. Emme pyynnöistä huolimatta saaneet kolmatta hammaslasia.

Top-Hotel an Top-Lage

Pros: Alles
Cons: Wüsste nichts.
Location: In der Nähe des Bahnhofs. Mit einem 20minütigen Fussmarsch oder dem Bus ist man in der Altstadt.
Mein Zimmer befand sich auf der Rückseite des Hotels und war absolut ruhig gelegen. Die Einrichtung und das Bett haben voll meinen Ansprüchen entsprochen. Zu erwähnen ist auch das herrliche ,vielfältige Frühstück.
