Practical accommodation, but not more
Posted May 21, 2015 on Hotels
My wife and I stayed in this hotel for a long weekend. Knowing the area, we selected this hotel for it's practical location close to Altona train station, away enough from the city centre to escape the tourist crowds, but still located in a lively neighbourhood with shops and restaurants. Compared to the downtown hotels, this hotel is reasonably priced, though not cheap either. However, given the basic room equipment and size, the price seems even too high. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. The breakfast is simple but okay. The free wireless works stably and sufficiently fast for email and internet. Our warning when booking: The offered 'standard double room with one bed' turns out to become a 'preference' in the booking confirmation. We did not notice this and ended up with two single beds, and were not excited about it. Since the hotel was fully booked, no chance for room change. I still wonder whether the way the rooms are offered on the hotels.com web page is fully correct.
