    Nice room with good sound insulation and good quality beds. Absolutely fatastic breakfast where quality, quantity and serving concerned, with good quality coffee too. A freat service offered is that guests can leave their car in the parking lot for a while after checking out, so that nearby City Centre can be visited easily.

    Room was a bit hot so that the bathroom window had to be opened, which worked a bit negative towards the outside sounds.

    Nice location with just a short walk to the center,. Rooms were nicely furnished and provided all necessary comfort. Breakfast was nice, especially the options in the menu. Staff was friendly and helpful.

    Would have loved to have more choice for the breakfast buffet - the options on the menu were great and delicious but for bread, there were only two choices of bread, one kind of ham, one kind of cheese and jam.

    Generally nice. A little run-down for the money but in an okay location near the uni and walking distance to town.

    We thought we had breakfast included but it turns out it wasn’t. We were hit with an 80 euro bill on checkout. This is our fault, but it would have been nice to know as we ordered that it wasn’t included. The breakfast itself was a little expensive and if we had known it wasn’t included, we’d have gone elsewhere.
