Positive Reviews

Breakfast with a View

Guests said the hotel offers an excellent buffet that features a broad selection of food that was enough to help them have a hearty first meal of the day. Furthermore, guests appreciated the incredible views of the city that could be admired from the windows as they ate.

Kind Staff Members

There were many accounts from guests about how the staff members were extremely considerate and went out of their way to provide unexpected assistance. For example, guests were often able to check into their rooms early or check out late for no extra charge after explaining why that sort of accommodation would be useful.

Great for Transit Users

Guests said this property is very convenient to the train station and tram lines. Furthermore, many reviews mentioned they were able to get free transit passes upon request, which made their trips a little handier overall.

Negative Reviews

No Restaurant or Bar

Some guests were disappointed that although the property has a breakfast room, there is no on-site option for getting later meals or alcohol. However, guests clarified that there are nearby places to do those things within walking distance, so most were only mildly upset that the hotel didn't have the amenities.

Refrigerators Not Always Cold

Guests who had refrigerators in their rooms occasionally reported that the appliances did not stay appropriately cold. When the issue was reported to staff, employees did what they could to resolve it, but guests still felt frustrated in some cases.

You Must Book Parking in Advance

Some guests were unpleasantly surprised when they discovered that the hotel's car park is rather small, meaning parking has to be booked before arrival. Although guests mentioned they were able to find parking elsewhere when necessary, some said they wished the hotel would have a different parking arrangement.
