Comfortable and modern hotel
The hotel is modern and nice, service was ok, I had a junior suite which was nice. Great location if you would like to be near the train station but a bit far from the actual centre.

Business traveller, Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We chose this hotel because of its location, near the station and the city center. The property is awesome as each StarHotels, and the room was very big with all the amenities you need. We didn't find the price list of minibar and the receptionist told us there was a QR code in the room but… was impossibile to find! Nevertheless, our stay was very comfortable and even with all anti-Covid measures in place, the breakfast was very satisfying. Great Choice!

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disliked: Staff & service
We checked into the hotel and were informed that breakfast would be free. My partner questioned this as we had a booking without breakfast. We were reassured it was complimentary. A quick Google search shows the hotel offer free breakfast so we presumed it was a gesture of goodwill during this time. This was not the case. Upon checkout we were charged for breakfast and told "its only a few Euro". This isnt a level of service expected from this type of hotel. It left us disappointed and angry. The area is OK. It's outside a busy train station.
