Quite good experience
Quite good experience but a little bit expensive regarding the comfort. I recommand this hotel for his location, the quality of the staff and the breakfast. Rooms are small and there is not a lot of place to put the clothes and luggages

Good hotel! Thumbs Up
Overall, the location of the hotel is good, near to almost everything (after all it's a small town). The airport bus stop is just 1 min away from the entrance so no need to drag luggage till you go mad (because of the snow). Receiptionist was very friendly and answered all our questions. Check in was also fast and room was spacious. Nothing to really complain about. The breakfast was good and it is till 11am so no need to rush. Constant replenish of food. We got only one thing to mention that is to wear ear plug during sleep as the walls are not really very sound proof and you may hear people walking at the walkway and room.
