Hotel Desirée
Too noisy
A review should be honest to help other travellers. I don't like to give a bad review but the truth is our stay was not good. We didn't get much sleep both nights due to the noise from the surrounding rooms and the hallway. We soon realised the people in the other rooms were not shouting, just talking relatively loudly. We could hear toilets being flushed too. The walls must be paper thin! The one thing you want from a room is to be able to get a good night's sleep and that was not the case. The water was also lukewarm in the shower. On a more positive note, the staff were really friendly, the buffet breakfast is good and the hotel is close to the railway station. Sorry but the above represents our stay.

The hotel is on a floor of a building with other hotels and private apartments. The pictures are nothing like the rooms. Do not stay here if you're a light sleeper, you can hear everything including the coffee machine at breakfast starting at 7am everyday.

They moved me to 2 star hotel - lack of rooms
Hotel staff asked me to move to a 2 star hotel, I guess they didn't have enough place to accommodate me, if that was the case they shouldn't have taken my booking. Not accepted
