Bei unserer Reise, gab es diverse Baustellen um das Hotel. Der Lärm hielt sich jedoch in Grenzen. Fürs Parken bezahlt man Innen und Aussen gleichviel. Wir mussten Aussen Parken, war aber zu jederzeit kein Thema bezüglich Unsicherheit. Wir wurden vom Personal nicht sehr freundlich begrüsst. Bei der Abreise jedoch waren alle sehr freundlich. Zimmer sehr gut, Frühstück in Ordnung, aber inklusive.

Gutes Hotel im Zentrum

Pros: Das Zimmer ist für Geschäftsleute gedacht und enthält die entsprechende Infrastruktur.
Cons: Der Früchstücksraum ist wie früher in einer Kantine mit Selbstbedienung.
Location: Zentral gelegen und man kann von dort aus viel zu Fuss unternehmen.,
Hotel erreicht man in kurzer Zeit von der Autobahn aus. Es liegt im Stadtzentrum und hat eine gute Infrastruktur. Sämtliche Interessanten Sehenswürdigkeiten kann man gut zu Fuss erreiche. Das Frühstück ist genügend, entspricht aber nicht unseren europäischen Erwartungen. Für eine Nacht geht das in Ordnung.

Hotel proche du centre

Suite tres grande avec tout confort avec ordinateur et imprimante. L'accueil est excellent et de bons conseils. Le point négatif est le petit déjeuné, ce n'est pas pratique, ( pourquoi ne pas fournir de plateau ) , c'est exigu et le dimanche c'est la cohue. l'hôtel est à l'angle de la rue Elgin animés, avec restaurants et commerces.
