good location
Friendly, helpful staff at a very convenient location. The chocolate fountain in the lobby brought a smile to my face and stomach every time we went past.

8/10 Very good

The hotel room was one of the smallest that I ever stayed. However, it was clean, centrally located, had pleasant personnel and a good breakfast.

Why chocolate?
Felt more like student digs. Small room, could have removed the safe and mini bar to give an easier access to the bed. Chocolate references in the reception display and colours but nothing else. Reception very small, felt crowded with only 1 other guest. Staff very friendly, knowledgable about the city and helpful.

10/10 Exceptional

The personnel were absolutely wonderful. The room was great. Spotlessly clean. Hotel was in the Old District, many restaurants nearby, and walking distance to the train station with luggage and all. Loved the place.

Great Hotel
Great Hotel. Would benefit from a fan to move some air on hot days but otherwise 10 out 10. Clean, pleasant decor, good range of amenities and the staff were polite and warm on their interactions with good knowledge of the local area.
