    The Room was nice

    Extortionate rates for making a call from My room. NO RATES WERE ADCERTISED and I was charged 8 euros per minute for an International call. The most expensive roaming rates on a cellphone are less than 1 euro per minute. I was flabbergasted and disputed the charges which they reluctantly reduced by 30%. At this rate it was still almost 3 times what I would have expected. This is a "screw the client" policy. Because of this, I would never recommend anyone staying there.

    Hotel was clean and a real 4 star hotel, it was all great, we found free parking outside the hotel, there was about 3 spaces only for free.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is located located in the city with a good choice of not so expensive restaurants and fast foods around the hotel. Price is not expensive and has a good choice of breakfast provided at nominal price. Some hotels charge ridiculous 20 Euros.

    The choice of food at the restuarant is limited.

    Good

    size of the rooms and cleanliness

    Very poor quality food and far to expensive, everything came out of the Microwave because they were not used to having people eating on saturday night, very strange argument for a hotel. Prices at the hotel are far to high for the quality you get, not the room price but for food and drinks, in the town the prices were nearly half than at the hotel and better quality.

    Fabulous

    Good hotel, excellent breakfast. Receptionist was very friendly and helpful; convinient parking; the hotel is very close to the airport. Huge, clean rooms, good bathroom.

    The hotel is situated very far from the city center, however the bus stop is just in front of the hotel.

    The area where the hotel is located is full of restaurants. The shuttle service to the airport is quite convenient. The fitness room is OK and the rooms are big in general.

    The room was stinking to cigarrette smoke even though I asked to be placed in a non-smoking floor.

    The matress was comfortable.

    The rooms were stuffy, hot, Staff did not ask me if I preferred a smoking or non-smoking. They did not care. I was given a smoing room on a smoking floor. There is no car parking. The web site does not tell you this!!. Car parking their own security parking is too low. Only tiny cars fit at 17 Euro pr night! Breakfast for 23 euros is ridiculous. Its a meal that you give to the dogs. Its the worst hotel I have been in for more than 30 years. I have spent 30 years trveling all around the world. This ranks in the worst top 5, I have been in. It is only worth perhaps 25 usd per night. Its appearance, facilitys and staff make this in a rank this just above a motel you find along some fo the lonely highways of the usa..

    Hotel was very outdated (oud). Towels were at arrival very dirty. All kind of Brown spots on this towel with some holes...really?! It took an half hour for new ones. Next day they forgot to give new towels.. Fitness room, was 2 by 3 meters. With 3 machines that were too old. When checking out we received à Bill with extra breakfast which we never took. Eventually we did get our money back, but nobody mentioned it...

    I booked based on a one-time offer 40 Euro. This was good, but even for this price I will not stay there again.

    What a dump. This is pretty run down. Entering the hotel, it already smelled bad. The room fealt unclean, especially the pillows. The room smelled as if I was located above the kitchen. The bath room was really in need of a refurbish. It was not possible to hang up the shower. The old shower was still there, but they just ripped off the switch. This is clearly not a 4 star hotel. There are better and cleaner 3 star hotels. With the normal pricing 150 and up, the price/quality is totally out of balance.
