3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Staff & service
Stayed 3 nights. Old carpets, old beds but linens were great. Staff is wonderful. Underground parking (15 euro/day) is a hassle. You have to get off your car to push a button and call for the front desk to open the gate. No stairs from the garage to the lobby, only elevator. I had to get something from my car but the elevator was broken. Breakfast is okay.
