Positive Reviews


Central location is highly convenient

The vast majority of guests who've stayed here loved the property's location. Just five minutes' walk from the city centre and within striking distance of every kind of shop, museum, gallery, park, bar, club and restaurant you'd ever want to see; it's easy to see why.


Attentive staff members are extremely hospitable

It's clear the courteous staff members here have won many admirers with their friendly disposition and professional approach. Fast check-ins and impressive English language skills earned the ever-smiley receptionists top spot on most visitors' league rankings.


Buffet breakfasts are free and filling

Lots of visitors have reported a great deal of satisfaction with the free breakfast buffet provided here. Evidently, this hotel provides a morning meal which is as substantial as it is varied.

Negative Reviews


Property feels like it's stuck in a timewarp

It has been noted that this property, both inside and out, looks and feels like it has changed very little since the 1980s. Some guests said it reminded them of a Soviet era hotel.


Opening times need to be more flexible

A significant number of visitors have been left somewhat dismayed by the opening times of some of the hotel's most popular amenities. The indoor pool, for instance, is shut between 10am and 6pm, while the pub is rarely open at all.


Wi-Fi could be better

Numerous travellers have highlighted some niggling issues with the free Wi-Fi at this hotel. The main bugbear reported was that you have to re-enter the username and password every time you come back to the hotel and want to get online.
