    Good stay in KRS!!

    good hotel, stay here all the time when I am in KRS. Good breakfast and restaurant is good for evening meals if you don't head into the city. only downside is the cost of parking in the underground car park, they should have a discounted rate for hotel guests I think. Good location near shops, restaurants, attractions etc.
