    The breakfast

    The internet would not allow to go in my yahoo account and the sauna should have the possibility to go with your partner.

    Guest rating

    The hotel is located in the city centre, very close to restaurants and shops.

    Our bathroom was not cleaned properly when we arrived. Rooms are noisy and lots of guests talking loudly in hallway. Our room was on the road side and there was a nightclub, lost of talking on Saturday night until about 3 a.m. Not suitable for light sleepers.

    Fabulous

    Comfortable spacious room, tea-pot was very useful. Very good location in the city center. Good restaurants in the hotel, good suna facilities and children playing room.

    We stayed in the hotel during Xmas holidays and we were rather surprised to find out on 6th of January that the restaurant was closed for "normal" visitors because of group booking. I think that this is not correct for hotel restaurant. Our room was situated above the night club and we had to listen to music and shouting of drunk club visitors up to 4am every night. I think that hotel staff should not give such room to families with small children. Reception staff is not helpful enough. We were waiting for the bus to the Zoo, lady at reception told us that the zoo was in opposite direction and the bus will not stop here. We had to take a taxi and go very quickly to local bus staion. Of course the bus stopped near the hotel.

    Excelent in every sense. Near to downtown, gorgeous landscapes just across the street. The bus to SC village passes in front of the hotel and every additional activity is easy to book with receptionist's help. The hotel's restaurant is superb by the way.

    Superb

    As we booked this hotel at last min decision, the room rate is a bit higher than as usual but the hotel is excellent, the room is tidy, bathroom is clean! And staffs are real nice though its not near the railway station (we have to get a taxi there since its a public holiday with no local bus), I will recommend this hotel !

    Very firendly staff and very close to the city centre. I'm surprised that the bus to the Santa Claus Village just stop outside the hotel, really convenient. And it's also very close to a highly ranked restaurant.
