                                    The level of service is very high. The central location just steps from the Dom and the central train station.

                                    The price of the breakfast, while extensive, is too high at 27 euros per person.

                                    Good hotel with good breakfast.

                                    2e day breakfast rollout was little bit chaotic in comparison to the day before. People where complaining about ordering coffee. And in the afternoon sauna facilities was mess. Everywhere used towels.

                                    Friendly and professional staff that ran the extra mile to make us feel at home. Brilliant logistics: next to Dom church, and undergorund parking literally on the other side of the street. Spacious rooms, with all amenities on-site.

                                    Liked the view on the Dom.

                                    Must have been a nice hotel in its day but refurbishment is at least ten years overdue.

                                    The location of the hotel is unbeatable and they were able to provide the exact room I had asked for. (view)

                                    Room was a little stuffy and the shower heads need some love as 6 out of 8 were clogged.

                                    Location is exceptional. Just in front of the Dome,the Rail Station. No need to taxi. Metro @ the hotel exit. City information center accross the street also for tickets if you need. Very complete breakfast with fresh/daily food. Nice small bar. It is a LHW and it shows. If you can get a good price don't even think about, go for it....

                                    The location of this hotel cannot be better. This is a fantastic hotel with equally great staff and services.

                                    I found the hotel excellent and was very impressed with the level of housekeeping service. I also found the hotels location excellent.

                                    I found the room at times too warm even when the heating in the room was turned off.
