Fond recollections of a memorable stay here keep a soft spot in our heart for this traditional hotel, located in a Habsburg yellow building across the ring road from the old town and city park.

The large, neo-traditional lobby has wood paneled ceilings, halogen lamps and brass accents. The comfortable lounge offers a quartet of antique, oversized wooden armchairs arranged on a spacious Persian carpet. A wintergarden at the front of the restaurant and café serves as the breakfast room.

Accommodations have high ceilings and are uniformly large. The decor is attractive and traditional with parquet floors, Persian rugs, graceful chandeliers, and wood furniture with burgundy-tinted floral fabrics. The white tiled baths all include tubs. One benefit of this slightly off-center location is the hotel's free parking lot.
