  • 4.0.Fair

    We made a reservation through expedia for 2 adults and one child and when we arrived we had one double bed. The cost of a triple room, was less, however the staff lied and said that it was not available, even though i could go on to Expedia and book it. cats running around everywhere, so unable to eat if you are allergic. The morning staff person was unapologetic and very difficult. The hotel has some restaurants close by and a grocery store, but to get to town center you have to take a taxi, 7 Euro each way. The beds are so hard. Not firm, really hard. No cleaning service.if you need to stay one night and go to the airport in the morning, good place to stay. otherwise stay closer to the city center.

    OK for quick nite near airport

    OK for a quick overnight stay close to airport, but only mediocre accommodations. Desk staff was very friendly.
