    5/5 Excellent

    Very close to the main train station. This was in walking distance of all attractions. The hotel was reasonably priced and their breakfast buffet was top notch with a wide variety of salad and fruits. The pastry selction was nice and the deli meats along with other breakfast items was just amazing. The room was a good size and was kept up well espicially for an older building everything looked new.

    We felt very pampered during our visit here. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, no matter what time of day. Our room was beautiful – – and our bathroom was elegant! The lobby offered great options for sitting and relaxing and the view from the patio on the roof was breathtaking. The only issue we experienced that was slightly negative was our room was too warm for sleeping for us and we were unable to set the room to a cooler temperature. There may have been an easy fix if we had called the front desk but we were too lazy to call. 😉
