    Fabulous

    The location was perfect! Walking distance to the main square, the castle and the Jewish district. The room was newly done so the condition of the rooms was very good. The staff were also really helpful and the tour they recommended (Manifold) was very professional.

    It was strange that the 'hotel' is actually inside the existing Monopol hotel... Though we peeked into the Monopol rooms and were very happy we stayed in the Jazz part. The breakfast was a good spread for Eastern Europe... Just not that tasty.

    Good

    The hotel is renovated partially (the jazz part). It had brochures which point out that the Jazz part was open in October, 2010. Design and lighting is really nice and support the topic. Also the location is great.

    However, all the rest was awful. Before the arrival, the hotel staff pre-authorized our credit card, i.e. blocked the amount per night. We could not use the money so had to make arrangements with the bank which costed extra money for us. Upon the arrival, we did not hear a single word of 'excuse' or at least any smile for causing us such inconvenience. We even wrote an email which was replied day after we left. The hotel does not have elevators, so be sure to have someone carry your luggage - the guy who 'shows' the room does not bother helping you. The breakfast is very very poor. Hotel pretends to be boutique and stylish but in reality is a partly renovated old style guest house.

    Facilities and location.

    Unable to purchase refreshments on the sat eve due to a private function. No prior warning or alternative suggested. Use of reception lounge for service of drinks could have been an option. Disappointed about the lack of flexibility the hotel offered.

    Very good

    The "Jazz" wing of the hotel is excellent, with spacious and well decorated rooms. The hotel`s location is walking distance from most of the city`s sights and there is a good car park available. Good and varied breakfast included.

    In the "old" wing of the hotel the rooms are very small, and the double bed glued to the wall makes a confortable night`s sleep difficult for a couple.The lack of a mini-bar in the rooms is also a minus.

    Fabulous

    Location is very close to the city center. Hotel staff was very helpful.

    The bathroom was the only old style thing of the room. Anyway the hotel and the rooms have been modernised.

    Great location, 5 minute walk from the main centre of the town. Professional, hard working, friendly and very helpful staff. Makes such a difference from normal british service.

    Breakfast could be a bit more diverse.

    I did not like the hotel and for the amount of money i paid it was very unsatisfactory.

  • 9.6
    Exceptional

    The staff were very friendly and helpful in booking trips from the hotel and local knowledge. The hotel is opposite parks, and a walk through the park put us right in the city center.

    Our room was at the front of the hotel and even on the top floor the noise from the trams was annoying - they only stopped for a couple of hours in the middle of the night. Fortunately my son had stayed here previously and warned us to take ear plugs.
