Very pleasant place to stay next to park and bus stop. Nice breakfast


Breakfast only served until 0830 Tiny room Tiny bathroom poor shower Soap not replaced No wardrobe or drawer to hang/store things Ibis provide all these things for the same money and, out of season, I can get a novotel for this money. Hostel world needs to make clear these sorts of facilities and what a hotel is offering. Completely see that, price aside, there is a place in the world for a hotel like this but I was expecting a lot higher standard for my nye break.

Negative impression. First of all, it was very-very cold in our room. The staff was not keen on fixing this problem: they did not preheat the room on the day of our arrival; and the room's heater was broken during the whole time of our stay (even though they came once to "fix it", actually they did nothing). Second, the toilet in the room was stinky as hell. Also, it was not so easy to flush the water in it. Third, the water in the sink was not warm at all.
