Warm, comfortable, convenient for us. We, and several other guests, had to wait for a space in the breakfast room before we could have breakfast on more than one day. The room is big enough for more tables - the management should invest in some, especially as they encourage people to come from outside for breakfast, and the breakfasts at Eur.16 are rater expensive.

Good hotel with some issues...
The service overall was good. The people at tge reception was very helpful. When we wanted upgrade our room ,it was done swiftly wirh no issues. The location of the hotel facing the river and close to station is very good as well. The rooms though were not clean for regular standards. The both room capets were stained. The same for toilettes and bathroom tiles ,moldy and dirty. It is a good idea not to service the rooms for the days the customer don't require it and give tgem vouchers to use but when they clean the rooms, they should do it properly. The thin pillows were not also comfortable. Only one provided. When we tried to have dinner at the restaurant, we were turned back 2 nites in a row. Maybe, language barrier. We were told they were full when in reality, they were empty an hour later. We were not asked if we wanted to reserve for another evening. It was as if we were not wanted. The feeling we got..

The hotel was nice but on arrival, I was informed the twin room I had booked months in advance was not available and I was expected to share a bed with my work colleague. They did, in the end, upgrade the room although one of us still had to sleep on a camp bed. Would suggest they don't take the money in advance of the booking if they aren't able to provide the room that was requested.
