      Value for money. Basic breakfast included. That is exellent if you have kids that nearly dont eat breakfast. Big shoppingcenter close to hotel. Nice twinrooms.

      Pay tv could have been hidden more. Not fun when you have kids traveling along.

      Hotel breakfast was good, but it was cold. Coffee (tea) and toast + egg are only hot thing in the morning buffee. There were plenty of fruits and different breads. Hotel has own garage and itt 11 e. Nearby there is free parking at the street.. Big mall is nearby too, parking there is about 1 e / hour. Water heater and tea +instant coffee in the room for free.

      Double bed was about 140 cm wide, but comfi. Only cold breakfast. Hotel room is about 15 m2.

      Most impressive hotel, and the facilities were brilliant as was the breakfast the following morning. Beds very comfortable, and loved the innovation of the toilet door in the bathroom! Would definitely recommend to anyone.

      I booked a tripple room (for three persons) but on arrival, I was told that the booking is only for two persons. She offered me a room with sofa bed but despite my full energy and efforts, I was not able to open the sofa and make it a bed. I had to sleep on the sofa and frankly, could not sleep well. I

      It was in a good location near to the University where our daughter is based and who we were visiting. Also a short walk to a big shopping centre. We booked this hotel as there was a buffet breakfast included in the price. There was plenty of choice and well presented. The hotel was very clean and modern.

      There wasn't enough tea/coffee in the room to have a drink after a long day exploring although you would probably be able to get more supplies from Reception. Also the hotel is being refurbished and we weren't informed of this. We arrived in our room to the sound of drilling in a nearby bedroom which made it difficult to have a rest. This went on for sometime. I wouldn't let this put anyone off booking this hotel though as they are obviously improving the hotel to a nice, modern standard.

      We were staying to visit Spiel 2012 - therefore the ability to play games in the evening in the hotel lounge was very useful, as was the hotel allowing us to order in pizza etc - all very informal and flexible - excellent.

      It would have been nice to have a greater choice of beers in the bar for the evening - one evening the beer ran out. Remember to get in extra supplies next time Spiel is on.
