Nice hotel near the centre of town
Posted May 13, 2015
The hotel was fairly easy to find. We went into the parking under the building, but further along the road there was more parking just on the side of the hotel off-road. Check in was extremely quick as they didn't ask to see passports. We went to our room, which had a nice enough view outside and was big and airy. Our key didn't work so we couldn't switch on the lights, but one call to reception had that soon sorted out. The bin in the bathroom hadn't been cleared out so I also had to ask for that to be taken care of on our way out.
The hotel is near a museum, monument and the towers. We walked around and had dinner. It was a Saturday evening and quite dead in the pedestrianized center of town.
The double bed was comfy and there was plenty of room for us. The bathroom door was like frosted glass so it was a bit disconcerting at first, but you couldn't really see through it unless someone was right against the glass. Also the bathroom wasn't quite a separate room so after our long hot showers the steam had gone over the top of the wall made the bedroom quite warm. We just opened the windows so it was fine. They had all the usual toilteries (no conditioner though I think) including bath salts!
The people on reception were very helpful and nice. Lawrence (I think) went out of his way to find out where the big boxing match might be screened. We had a good breakfast with lots of cereal, cold cuts, pate, bread, jam, cheese and eggs. After check out we kept our car in the parking
