Recently attended a convention here. Really impressed with the staff and the facilities. Nice modern hotel with friendly reception and bar. Easy parking and I like the location of the hotel as well. Central to the city center but far enough out not to be traffic congested. Nice pool

It started as a nightmare, but gladly it turned later into a fairy tale ... However, that was not the hotel's mistake but the travel operator's, we had a valid voucher, while the hotel reception was not aware of our booking. Try imagine, you finally arrive from the airport to the hotel full of excitement and expectations ahead of your...

We were a bit afraid after the "stay away" reviews below, but our holiday in this hotel turned out to be a very pleasant experience. The hotel itself is a bit worn-out, I would credit them with 3 stars, but as we spent minimum time inside the room, it was OK. The beds were comfortable, the service was good, towels...
