    Ok, but with some problems.

    The hotel was pleasantly decorated but for a 4 star hotel somewhat shabby. The service was rather poor. The sauna was not hot, and there was essentially no table service at breakfast, which was not warm in the trays. The desk was ok, except that they misquoted the rate for an additional night. Parking was more expensive than usual. All this was surprising because other Sokos Hotels have had excellent service, and are more reasonably priced.

    A great short stay with wonderful views over town

    I stayed 1 night as a business traveler. |The hotel is easy to find as you can see it stand above the town. I drove to the hotel and the parking is onsite and easily accessible. Checkin was simple and straight forward. I had a room on the 14th floor, it was a twin bedded room but the beds were right next to each other. The room had a great room over the town and even with the window open it was quiet. The bed was comfortable and the duvet ideal for the time of year. The pillows were probably the only let down and they were ok, just not great. The shower room is compact but has a really good shower and a full depth bowl. Temperature was easy to regulate in the room, it had a desk, large flatscreen tv and a minibar. The storage space was good for a short stay. The rate included breakfast and that was a really diverse buffet. I didn't eat dinner in the hotel but there is a restaurant on site (where you have breakfast). I looked at the menu and there was good choice at reasonable prices. There is a good swimming pool so don't forget your swimmers. Overall it was a great choice and I will definitely return there for business or leisure.

    Good location, beautiful view from my room on the 14th floor. Tried to enjoy the spa area... However although it was unlocked and well lit, a staff person told me it wasn't open and had to leave. Disappointing as I had of course paid the fee. Everything else was great!
