There is better hotels in town.
It’s nice located hotel with interior 1980’s look. I was on fifth floor, need to wait for hot water at least 5 minutes. First day I didn’t know so came out without shower. It’s not for what I have paid.

It was a good stay. It matched what we were paid for. Nothing spectacular but sufficient for us. The staff was nice.

6/10 Good

Great terrace, but heat problem in room.
Great location. Very limited check in times was an issue. The big problem was that the heat radiator in the bathroom was on full heat, with no way to shut it off and no front desk help at all. It made the stay very uncomfortable even with the window open.

10/10 Exceptional

Clean and friendly place, located near the Cathedral. Access is on a pedestrian street which makes car access a little cumbersome. Parking is off site but easy access.

Beautiful view, spacious room (although they also have smaller rooms), good parking offered just around the corner, great and friendly service. Location is also great. Would stay here again
