    We only stayed one night on a trip to bring my daughter to college. It was very clean. Rooms were nice. Good choice for the price. It was close to the train station which was very helpful.

    gutes Hotel in Bahnhofsnähe

    Das Hotel liegt gut in Bahnhofsnähe, so konnten wir gut die Stadt erkunden und Ausflüge in die Umgebung unternehmen. Das Frühstücksbuffet ist gut. Das Personal hat sich immer um alle Anliegen bemüht und war immer sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Das Hotel liegt an einer sehr befahrenen Strasse, an der schon am Morgen früh sehr laut gearbeitet wurde. So konnten wir nicht gemütlich noch etwas liegen bleiben

    Comfort tout à fait OK, mais hôtel bruyant

    Hôtel proche de la gare, et simple d accès. Confort tout à fait acceptable pour un 2 étoiles, propre et fonctionnel. Par contre l hôtel est très très bruyant, dans doute mal isolé au niveau des fenêtres. Situé en dessus d une route passante, beaucoup de bruits de voiture la nuit et de gens qui sortent le soir, les week-ends en tous cas. Mais a l intérieur aussi, beaucoup de bruits la nuit, les gens qui rentrent tard pendant la nuit ou matin très tôt.. Aucune isolation au niveau des portes des chambres aussi. Mais c est un 2 étoiles...
