Be prepared to climb down a good number of stairs in a cold weather to arrive at the reception but a nice welcome with a warm coffee was excellent.. The rooms were very comfortable and the sleep quality was good.. There are not much views from our rooms but the place is nicely set up and staff is very friendly.....
