The range of food at breakfast was good and when staff found out about our early checkout gave us wonderful breakfast bags to take with us on the train. I would definitely stay here again.
Cons: The air conditioning was broken and due to our room overlooking the Italian restaurant next door we couldn’t even leave a window open, so the room was very warm. This being said we did get free mini bar as compensation.

Pros: Hotel located next to the old town and quite bug shopping mall. Room service breakfast was really good.
Cons: Reception Desk - I was checking in on the 27th of September and I don't remember the name of receptionist but I didn't like the fact that I need to provide my ID, my Passport also, even though I booked this place with my booking account, where all my personal information stored. Also the way receptionist requests documents is not friendly at all. Hotel needs renovation - almost each piece of furniture in the room was with scratches or with broken pieces. When I ordered breakfast to the room, I had completely broken table - with one missing part of the desk.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Perfect! Very nice hotel
Cons: Nothing
Excellent 8.3
Pros: Location, room decoration, staff. I have been visiting this hotel several times over many years. I like staying there. The staff members are usually very friendly and helpful. Breakfest is good. Location is perfect.
Cons: There were fingerprints on the dustbin in the bathroom, there was no paper sealing on the toilette, and the small “good night” pillows were missing. I liked them a lot in the past. Apart from these small things everything was perfect.

Pros: The great hotel with the great location - right in the Old Town. Super-comfortable tall bed (one of the best we ever enjoyed in hotels!), big and quiet room. Very rich breakfast, nice spa. Private free parking.
Cons: Somewhat pricy for the “low-season” (93€ per night, when you can get similar hotel for 70-80€). A little bit of a strange smell in our room that is on the second floor above spa (like children food?). Also hotel needs some renovation in the near future. But don’t get me wrong - we REALLY liked it :)
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Very comfortable bed Room service Spa staff and service Outdoor Jacuzzi Breakfast Restaurant selection and setting Bath robes in rooms Good selection of massages Parking reservation

Pros: We had quite short name there, so difficult to judge. Central location, clean place, but I didn't notice or feel something eye-pleasing or heart-pleasing.
Cons: We arrived at late hours, receptionist explained, that hotel is overbooked, so they can provide us a smaller room than ordered. But in compensation will provide free parking and free breakfast. We have left early morning, breakfast pack was not ready. It was to early. But had to pay for a water bottle from the mini bar .
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Staff is very nice and helpful. location of the hotel is absolutely perfect - just by the main street
Cons: thermostat at the radiator was missing. the room's temperature was too high and it was impossible to reduce it
Good 7.1
Pros: The location is perfect, direct in the center. Many bars and restaurant nearby.
Cons: The adress of the parking area is different from the hotel adress. It takes lng time to find the garage. You should mark it in the internet.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Very good staff at reception, especially girls/women, also very friendly staff at serving breakfast (girls also). Location is perfect.
Cons: Room service. Heres the story: I left not entirely clean table at my room and went to business meetings.It was left few used glasses and remains of chips at the table. When i came back, dirty glasses were placed to their place at the wardrobe and all the remains of chips were simply thrown to the sink. That was very disrespectful. Also they don't change bed sheets. Yakuzzi is not working also.

Pros: The personel, the breakfast, the rooms. All these were excellent!
Cons: The jacuzzi was too small and we did not manage to use it as it was crowded.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Good guarded parking, nice staff, clean and comfortable room. In special requirements we asked, if they could include some vegan options for breakfast. The usual answers from hotels are "sorry, we have only our standard menu" or "we will try to include some options" or (very rare) "yes, we have vegan options", but in this time the answer was "Of course, we will prepare a vegan breakfast. It would be helpful if you wrote us what you prefer for breakfast." We gave a list, so they could choose something to prepare, but they made EVERYTHING from that list, even vegan pancakes and vegan oatmeal!
Cons: Other guests liked vegan pancakes too much, so we didn't have much left. :)

Pros: Nice room was comfortable and clean. The house is really close to the main street in the old town, just one minute walking. The breakfast is good (if you go in-time). The staff is nice. All in all we recommend the pension.
Cons: We missed a kettle with mugs in the room in winter time and there are just a few sockets for electronic devices. You need to go to have breakfast at the beginning of the breakfast time due to the food supply will be less but it is understandable in a smaller guesthouse and of course you can always get something and the staff was helpful. :)

Good 7.0
Pros: bed was so comfy, I just didnt get it why I had 2 duvets, curtains were thick enough so I could sleep during daylight as well. It really helps when jetlagged. and the breakfast, huge selection of food. tasty
Cons: smell in the room was weird. It wasn’t terrible, but the entry to the room wasnt really pleasant. The hotel needs to do something with water pressure in a shower. It change for no reason and not only pressure but temperature as well. From boiling to ice cold any time. I guess when someone next room use a shower as well. Spa is not the part of the hotel. it’s the same building but its accessible for public as well. And u have to walk thru waiting room at medicine centrum, yes in your robe. usually it’s empty at that time but still u can see ppl sitting there and waiting for a doctor. and the way back is also bit weird when u walk in a robe almost outside to get a lift. Its so cold there. overall the stairs area is so cold coz its 1/3 made of glass.
