„Perfect"

„Amazing stay! First of all, the guy who did us the check in was beyond nice, polite and professional. He was so kind, explained everything in detail and gave us tips. I wish everybody in every hotel would be like him. Room was spacious and nice. Hotel is located just in the train station, good thing if you are coming from the airport or from another place because you just have to walk 30 seconds, and it is also a short walk from the city center. “
