4 out of 5
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.
