Not the nicest room or hotel for 4 stars. Needs an update and for the aircon system to be working when needed regardless of time of the year. Hotel staff were kind and helpful though and the bar service was good.

The rooms, even though a good size, were expensive. We paid 70 EUR/room/night for 65% comfort, hot rooms, noisy for the one that was viewing the bulevard, poor breakfast. For a 4 stars hotel, the breakfast consisted of choices of eggs, some meat and cheese. Not many options for vegetarians. The entrance to the hotel is also obsolete. There is...

Nice hotel, large rooms, very good staff only issue was the room was too hot. I know it was 0C outside but no need to make rooms so hot. Breakfast was plenty and a good variety on offer. We would definitely stay here again

It was my second choice when I found out that my reservation in Hilton was not successful, but it was quite OK. Location was excellent for my purposes, and it was also very close to the city center. Room was very nice and clean and the staff was pleasant. While I was out for a business, my wife had ordered...
