Extremely comfortable pillows and bed

Extremely comfortable pillows and bed. Staff very polite and helpful. Disappointing that one had to pay extra to visit the rooftop terrace.

Obwohl, so sehr Großes Hotel und sehr viele Menschen für Übernachtungen, Hochzeiten, Konferenzen ect. Täglich hin kommen, alles sehr gut organisiert, die Personal ohne Ausnahmen, sehr freundlich. Einzige, Preisleistung stimmr nicht, weil die Zimmer sind realativ alt und sehr "altmodischer"einrichtungen. Ich bin drei mal in derei verschiedenen Zimmer übernachtet. Alles gleiche. Suite, Luxus Zimmer etc. Etc. Stimmt einfach nicht. Tepoich Boden, alte Holz. Alles zu schwer. Ansonsten qkkes gut

Zugang zur Dachterrasse verwigert!

Grundsätzlich ist das Hotel an bester Lage ok, sollte man aber ein Zimmer der untern Kategorien gebucht haben, darf man nicht einmal die Dachterrasse mit bester Aussicht betreten. Sehr schade!!
