Excellent location for Christmas Markets
Lovely hotel with very welcoming staff, especially Anna on reception who was particularly attentive . Standard Room was small but comfy bed and modern bathroom. We did not have breakfast so can not comment on the food but the bar was very small with only one member of staff which sometimes made the service slow with long queues.

ביצעתי הזמנה של 2 חדריםעבור הטיול המשפחתי שלנו ,ציינתי במפורש שנדרשות מיטות נוספות כי אנחנו מגיעים עם ילדים, ביום ההגעה התקשרו אליי משירות הלקוחות לוודא את מספר החדרים כי הזמנתי בפלטפורמות שונות, אישרתי את מספר האנשים וציינתי במפורש שנדרשות מיטות נוספות, בעת ההגעה היו אי הבנות בקבלה והמידע מהשירות כלל לא נמסר ולקח זמן עד שקיבלנו את החדרים, באחד החדרים המיטה הנוספת הייתה מיטה קטנה מתקפלת שאינה מתאימה גם לילדים, במהלך כל השהות הבטיחו לנו שיחליפו לנו חדר וזה לא קרה, במשך כל השהייה לישון על המיטה הזאת היה פשוט סיוט. בנוסף התמונות של החדרים לא משקפות את המציאות! ארוחת הבוקר כלל לא הייתה טעימה ולא היה מבחר או גיוון בכלל, למרות ששילמנו עבור ארוחת בוקר נאלצנו לצאת עם הילדים לאכול בחוץ. יש לציין לחיוב את קטלין מדלפק הקבלה שאכן ניסה לעזור והיה מאוד נחמד. בשורה תחתונה לא נחזור למלון זה שוב.
