    Superb

    Extremely friendly, professional and helpful staff. We asked for quiet room when booking and got one. Proper double bed, good quality towels, with bathrobe and slippers. Very enjoyable breakfast. Large, well laid out restaurant and bar area including beer garden. Overall a very relaxing, welcoming atmosphere.

    +The Room Price is fantastic for such a good hotel (around 100 Euro the time we visited) and for a 5star hotel this is more than fair.

    -They will way OVERcharge you even in the thought of doing something more except sleeping in that hotel. (Expensive Parking, Expensive Ticket for the pool, Expensive Breakfast etc etc). It's just "sleep and go".

    the worst hotel I have ever seen in my live.The luggage you have to carry yourself.The waiters and other come unexpected by using their keys into your room.the rooms are dirty and water was dripping along the wall which kept the flour soaking wet.the bed had been used from a previous guest and was not made newly there has been a lot of hair in the bed and it was dirty as well,the bathroom was dirty as well,internet did not work,to change to a new room took 3 hours beside this there was a lot of construction noise in the entire hotel.Taxi you have to call yourself,etc.In all the really worst place I have ever been to.
