The hotel is located approx. 20mins by walk from old town - tram, trolleybus, bus few mins by walk. Our room was nicely furnished, clean and quiet. Generally I can recommend this hotel even though the neighborhood is not exactly pretty. There is only unpaved road to the hotel (50m).

It was nice, clean and good price. The only "bad" thing was the view. Room is standard, bed is good. Breakfast was ok. It is not in a tourist area but close enough to shopping and recreation. Recommended Good service in reception, but not so much roomservice.

It's located close to city center, 17 min walking to central market. The bad part is that there's no elevator, we had to take the stairs up to the 4th floor. Our room had a TV, but lacked other basic appliances, such as no electric kettle. It's basic and cheap.

I got a good welcome, he staff was very friendly. The location is quite good, on walking distance from the center and old town. Everything was working out as planned, e.g. breakfast. It is a good hotel to stay in.
