Everything was to my expectation except the hotel staff was not so well trained, from restaurant staff to reception. The reception was quite rude to hang up after replying to my question and did ask if there are any further need which I had.

Sebastian N. Business travelers Sweden, March 4, 2015
central nice hotel

location, roof top, nice rooms

The hotel is located just in the center of town. However, there is a massive port being build now and they work on it 24 hours, it is noisy in the night to sleep there. The gym is ONLY open until 21.00, the earlest gym i been to at hotels, its usually always 22.00 or 23.00 or then just 24 hours. I wonder why it closes so early. The staff at the dining room is also very slow, i ate there 8 times and 6 of the times i had to ask for a coffee 2 or 3 times before it came, same thing with the bill and getting a soda water. I dont know if its the english or if they forgot or if they just dont really cared, you could tell the staff that...Room was nice but internet is SLOW. The pool is really great too and there is a very nice roof top bar / resaurtant! This was a great hotel, just some minor improvements could be done here .
