      Good, but some shortcomings

      Great breakfast buffet, and proximity to Aquarama is a family winner. Expensive parking and no possibility for food after 21:00 (after the kids have gone to bed)…

      Great staff, good location

      Negative: fully booked hotel meant difficult to have covid friendly breakfast service. Perhaps booking a specific time for breakfast would’ve helped? Also was a little sad no mini fridge in room, room a bit cramped. Positive: great staff, accommodated requests, great with my daughter, clean room, nice location, overall positive experience.

      We had a delightful stay. Check-in and check out was smooth. Location is close to the walking path and the city center. Breakfast and other meals we ordered were very good.

      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.
