I stayed in a couple room with a top view. The room was spacious. Everything else was way better than all of Europe's hotel experiences I had so far. The breakfast buffet was also delicious. I have no complaints for anything. It's more than I thought when I was booking this hotel

This hotel is a dying business. The furniture is old. Our bed was broken and bending to one side. I’ve uploaded the picture, you can see that the bed is broken and bending. The sauna was cold. I had to wait for three days to get the sauna appointment and then although I had booked it days before, when I came and took shower and then went to the sauna, it was cold and freezing. I had to take a shower again to warm up a little bit and came back to my room without being able to use the sauna. The towel in the sauna had a blood mark on it. Bed sheets in the room are old and lost its whiteness. The rooms smell cigarette all the time. There’s a problem with their AC. It’s either too cold or too hot. In some of their rooms (this was the case in our room too) the “do not disturb” button doesn’t work and their housekeeping staff keeps entering the room while you’re sleeping. Location is not bad. We paid 100 euros for a night and stayed 4 nights. But I’d never stay here again.
