We didn't realize there would be 0 towels in the room with getting one for 2 Euro each. Also, parking lot was way too small.

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service
They make an appreciated effort to help with parking and the lady at the front desk was very kind. On the minus side the room lacks power outlets, the shower lacks shelves or anything you can use to put your shampoo on, and other guests in the room were loud and inconsiderate.
