Not worth 4 stars
  • Hotel not recommended
  • Couples

  • Other stay
  • July 2013
The hotel is a bit outdated now. The booked double room with sea view had a very small bathroom and the tv was for the size of the room more than just small. The balkontüre could only with strain open and without violence and lift the door could not be closed. This left the door not more completely close (circa 1 centimeter gap) so that we have the reception the caretaker called. This came as and brought a screwdriver and a crowbar with, the dissident door halfway to close. The problem seemed already to be aware of, but a technician ... with the repair on this subject, that seemed not necessary. The breakfast made us the service coworkers did not know the most demanding impression. For example, the empty müesligeschirr or empty and no longer needed juice glasses from the table. The departure was therefore, that when we paying the hotel bill not to our satisfaction were asked and the usual best wishes for the home journey could you here in vain wait. A shame, because with a little more distance to the guests and a few words more here would be a lot to save before. read hotel review
