    Worst Customer Service Ever

    I booked the hotel for 5 nights. I unfortunately had to leave after the second night due to a family emergency related to covid. I was not refunded for the remaining of the nights, neither credited from Under normal circumstances I could understand but the hotel was shorted in staff. I even had to wait to check in upon my arrival, no use of amenities, no regular cleanings. I could not even talk to anyone when I left because in fact there was no one to talk with at the front desk as in the entire hotel....and guess why? Because of covid....little bit of hypocrisy here charging your customers forced to leave because of covid while not offering standard services because of covid... Overall nice hotel but no idea of what customer service should be in 2021....I would not recommend

    Nice modern hotel

    Modern clean hotel. The room was nice and clean, had a nespresso coffee machine and a fridge. There was also a nice gym with good amount of equipment. Convenient to walk to the city centre and loads of restaurants. There is also a car park just around the corner

    This property is really nice with a great staff. The room was large and clean, but the bathroom was separated from the rest of the room by a glass wall with curtains. When the bathroom light is on, it brightens the main area as well.
