The hotel was well located - not far from the train station, walking distance to major sites. The staff was friendly. We had a very nice stay.

Close to the train station. Breakfast was very good. Beautiful new bathroom could have used a shower curtain without a torn section. Overall a nice stay.

The hotel's location is good. It was very clean, if not spotless. The breakfast was very good. Best of all was the staff. They were all extremely nice and very helpful. They clearly understand what true hospitality is.
