Enjoyed the stay here overall, hotel was clean, rooms spacious, lobby was modern, has PCs to use and offers the opportunity to buy snacks and drinks which is a nice touch. |The pool table also is a nice thing to have. |A couple of things to note though, it says 20 min walk to the centre but this is more a 25-30 min walk (and we are fit in out 30s) |So if you are planning to head back to the hotel to get changed for dinner, it's a heck of alot of walking. (Of course the metro is available) ||They also offer English breakfast tea bags in the room, however no milk! |There is milk creamer supplied, great for coffee, but not for tea. When asked at reception for milk, I was advised to take from a cafe! |It's a 4* hotel with a restaurant, milk should have been offered. ||Breakfast was expensive at €40 per day for 2. There's plenty of places in the centre to eat. I guess if you are on business and on expenses this is what they are counting on.||The staff weren't overall friendly, checked us in and stored our luggage but nothing more than that. It didn't feel welcoming to ask them about touristy questions. |It is more geared up for business guests. |

I stayed here from 27th-29th November. The hotel was fine, clean, tidy and comfortable and a decent location.|The reason for the poor score is due to not having my 100 euro holding deposit refunded to me. I was advised by the hotel management that I would be refunded this back within 5 days, however to date, despite multiple messages to the hotel, I have not received it. I have now had to raise a dispute with my bank. |My advice would be not to stay here and to those that do, please use you credit card and ensure you check that you get your deposit back.
