    Above the average

    Since we went on a business trip, they came to the hotel only to spend the night. The room was large enough, we did not feel cramped. Loved the breakfasts, plentiful and hearty. The area where the hotel is located is quiet and calm.

    Hotelli on jo hieman vanhentunut, mutta se on silti siisti eikä mikään ollut rikki. Aamupala oli runsas.

    Korjausehdotuksia

    Äänieristys kaipaa korjausta. Tuoksu kylpyhuoneessa ihmetytti!

    Neljän yön matka.

    Sänky oli mukava, olin superior huoneessa. Näköala joelle. Aamiainen kattava. Muutoin ilmastoinnissa olisi parantamisen varaa.

    Hotelli on täys remonttia vailla. Vanhentunut ulkonäkö ja kuluneet kalusteet. Huoneessa 26 astetta lämmintä ja ilmastoinnista ei tietoakaan. Erittäin huono hinta/laatu suhde. Aamupala hyvä.

    Yöruokaa ei saa, muuten hyvä

    Kimmel = Himmel, sano saksalainen. Ainoa minus on että hotellista/lähistöltä ei saa yöllä mitään ruokaa eli kannattaa varata jotain sapuskaa huoneeseen mikäli meinaa käydä viikonloppuyönä hotellin yökerhossa.
