          Good Dinner buffet.

          It is a 15 minutes walk up the hill from the Bus station. Difficult to find cab at the bus station if you have heavy luggage to carry.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          Neat and clean spacious rooms and toilets.

          Its about 1.5 km of uphill walk. If reaching by bus and carrying your luggage, it can be a bit tough.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Friendly and efficient staff, good breakfast buffet (waffles!), and easy parking.

        • Single
          9.2

          Great rates for such type of hotel (large hotel with a lot of services).

          Breakfast not included

        • Family with children
          10.0

          The budget rooms were full and we were upgraded to rooms with bathrooms. They were spacious, clean, with small kitchen, TV, and quite luxurious compared to other accommodations. I would highly recommend spending the extra money for these rooms, as the quality was much much better than the typical student dorms this hotel chain provides. Located up a hill from town center - we drove rather than walked, but in good weather it is probably walkable.

          No - this was the best budget accommodation we found on our trip.

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          Location of the hotel is good - close to the city center and Botanical Gardens. Good car parking area

          Hotel charged for wireless internet, though in the booking condition it was freeof charge. After some discussion this issue was solved and money returned.

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          The hotel is located in a good position close to the city center (5 mins walking) and to the botanic garden one of the most interesting things to see in the city. The staff was really nice and helped us with any request even when not directly related to the room we booked. We stayed in a cheap double room with a washbasin but without bathroom. The room was clean and wide enough to keep our luggage and stuff. Overall for the cheap price we pay the service was good.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          the opportunity tu use the school as an hotel during the holidays

          nothing special as far as we are informed that rooms are students rooms whith shared toilets and showers

        • Single
          7.4

          comfortable rooms, decent value; hasn't got the typical Edda charme, Hotel is a little too big for it's own good

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          The size of the room was good and it was equipped with both refridgerator and microwave.

          I thought it was overpriced and wish the room had been equipped for wireless internet.

        • Couple
          9.2

          Rooms with bathroom large and confortable.Very nice and always availabe staff. Good position also to have a walk in city center. Good price.

        • Couple
          7.8

          That it was run by students & neat use of otherwise empty accommodation.

          Room listed as a double but was a twin.
