Central location, nicely designed rooms, very friendly staff.
Sauna is rather small and has no room for relaxing after the sauna.

Location is good. Breakfast is really good. The bed is very comfortable. Big smart TV screen. Quite good noise insulation between the rooms. There’s a heated towel rail.
Small room size and small bathroom. No fridge. TV is fixed to the wall therefore it’s impossible to reach the HDMI or DisplayPort connection if the Bluetooth doesn’t work for your device. If window is open the street noise is very loud.

Near the city center within walking distance. Excellent breakfast. Beautiful shower gel, conditioner and body cream. Good price-performance ratio. Thank you for staying.
