Liked: I highly appreciated the receptionist who made my check-in; she spoke perfect english and was very nice and knowledgeable of the sights and restaurants in town (the other receptionist were good too); i booked a single room but i was given a bigger room, which increased my Value for Money evaluation; Breakfast was very complete, being with accordance to the taste of the local and international traveller. I liked very much the study/leisure room, which i am sure many 5 star hotels envy.

Disliked: I think the property should be more well kept, not in terms of cleanliness, but the furniture and facilities, so that they pay due respect to the rest of the property; i found it odd that the curtains were so thin and insufficient for covering the sunlight at sleeping hours, and charge 20 krones for purchasing a sleep mask... don't be offended but... is this what we call upselling?...
