Inside the double room

The standard double room is very spacious with 28 m². The room has heating, as well as air-conditioning. The room had a big flat-screen TV and a minibar with complimentary bottled water. The private bathroom includes a shower, slippers and toiletries.

I also appreciated the seating area at the end of the bed that enhanced a very homey feeling. The walls also didn’t seem to be thin as it was very quiet and we didn’t hear any other guests when we were in the room.

Breakfast is served on the first floor and is available from 7 to 10. The buffet offers a lot of different dishes including Western and Asian foods. Fresh juices and coffee are also available. I appreciated the selection of bread and baked goods, while my husband really liked the fried rice and more hearty options on offer.
