positiv: Central location of hotel.Close to public transport and within walking distance of most tourist sights.
negativ: Pizza restaurant was very cold on 2 occasions.A coat was needed whilst eating dinner.
negativ: Rooms very dated and in need of a refurbishment, wall paper ripped, windows leeking
positiv: Very friendly staff, happy to help and polite.
negativ: The public areas of this hotel are completely misleading - very grand lobby and looks lovely, but my room let it down. Dated, shabby decor; noisy, cold room with apparently no proper heating; half-used complimentary toiletries; no overhead lighting do had to rely on dim lamp....
positiv: Staff very helpful. Location excellent. Restaurant very good.
negativ: Bathroom is a let down. General decor needs updating. Lift is a mess.
positiv: A nice looking old palace-style hotel. It must have been one of the best hotels in town when it was built - roughly at the beginning of the 20th century.
negativ: Old palace also means that not everything always perfectly suits modern needs and tastes. There is a feeling of lost glory about the place.
positiv: the room size was good but i was in a executive room. i would have been worried what the standard and econmey rooms were like.
negativ: i forgot about th pecail discount for the breakfast. when i asked about it recption did not know about it. the hotel needs to be refurbished not just repainted.
