Some reminders to staff required over simple things missing - lack of towels replaced, or shampoo replaced, but staff was always happy to oblige.

Very friendly staff. Service is super. Front desk staff provided all the info we need for the stay without us even asking. Room is very clean and bed is comfortable. We couldn't have asked for more.

Great hotel choice!
Great location. Take the tram for free across from rail station at Burger King, one stop and it is right there. A quick walk down the stairs to town to good restaurants such as Schnadel and Brown Bear. Free honour bar drink was welcoming after a long day of travel. Rooms are sparkling clean. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Great hotel with wonderful staff
The front desk staff were exceptional, very friendly and helpful. The hotel is conveniently located to the train station and the old city. Some rooms have updated bathrooms, some do not. Rooms on the front side of the hotel have air conditioners but rooms on the back side in the shade, do not have air conditioners. Lovely terrace out back for evening drinks.
