Hei, Kiitos palautteestanne vierailuanne koskien. Olen välittänyt palautteenne kerroshoidollemme, jotta saamme asian korjattua. Mukava kuulla, että muuten vierailunne meillä sujui hyvin ja viihdyitte meillä. Tervetuloa uudelleen! Terveisin,

Sijainti täydellinen, rautatieaseman välittömässä läheisyydessä.

Aamiaistila oli ahdas, 10-kerr. remontin takia. Tyhjä baaritila alakerrassa olisi voitu avata aamiaisajaksi.

Hei, Kiitos palautteestanne koskien vierailuanne meillä Vaakunassa. Pahoittelut tämän hetkisen aamiastilan ruuhkaisuudesta. Onneksi uusi ravintolatilamme valmistuu kesäksi ja toivon, että tulette uudelleen vieraaksemme. Oikein mukavaa talven jatkoa!

Hyvä 50-luvun paikka, tosi tyylikkäästi entisöity. Valitettavasti väliaikainen aamiaispaikka oli ahdas. Aamiainen oli normaali hotellikeskitaso.

Hei, Kiitos palautteestanne. Mukava kuulla, että majoituksenne sujui hyvin ja viihdyitte hotellissamme. Toivottavasti näemme teidän pian uudestaan ja viimeistään, kun 10 krs. remontti on valmis. Mukavaa talven jatkoa!
