Stayed here one night for business. Very swanky hotel, modern touches in old building. Great service and friendly staff. Good choice for breakfast. Very happy to stay here again. Close to town centre and harbour so walking distance for everyone. Lots of restaurants very close

Hotellsengen i suiten vi fikk. En glassdør kunne åpnes og lukkes til det enorme badekaret. Det var også egne avlukker for dusj og toalett.
Loungeområdet i suiten vi fikk. Stor lysekrone, tv, minibar, Nespresso-maskin, balkong, sofa og lenestol m.m. Det var toalett i begge etg.

"Facing the sea / higher floor"
"If you want a room with a view, request it upfront."
"Make sure the window does not face into reception"
"Room 444 was quiet, large bed, tv, large shower and was clean."
"If staying during a weekend there will be some noise from street level, that be traffic of clubbers waiting for taxi home after last call."
