Good,clean accomodation and very good value for money through the Travelzoo offer.Breakfast was excellent and staff friendly.The only dissapointment was that we were given a ground floor room when we had specified "not ground floor" on special requests when booking. Apparently this request was not forwarded to the hotel.
