This hotel feels dated from the moment you set food in it. Your first contact with this hotel is carrying your suitcases up some stairs at the entrance. Why nobody thought of installing a ramp is unclear to me. The whole building looks like it got stuck in the seventies. With long, unwelcoming halls and very basic rooms (no decoration in our room whatsoever). If cosiness is not important to you, the basics are ok: the room is clean, the douche cabin in the bathroom looked very new and the beds are comfortable. There is no wifi in the room though.
Staff to me seemed not very competent, since there was a problem with our booking and they didn’t succeed in researching what went wrong. We left the hotel without knowing if it got sorted out.
Breakfast was fine, though. Enough options to choose from (cheese, meat, fish, yoghurt, fresh fruit). There were even some pancakes. I did miss some fresh bread though. There was only toast bread available.
Wifi only works in the lobby. When wifi stopped working my boyfriend asked to reset the modem, but the employee at the reception didn’t even know where the modem was.
If you’re just looking for a bed to stay in, this hotel is ok. I you look for a rememberable experience, this hotel is not for you.
