Editor's Note: This property was formerly the Best Western Hotel Daniel.
July 25, 2003
The hotel has six floors with 100 guest rooms. The hotel was built in 1956 and remodeled in 1995. The traditional European interiors are a bit drab and stuffy, but not oppressively so. We were fortunate enough to have a room with a balcony on a high floor facing east towards the old town. Our room with two twin beds was spacious enough, with a steamily hot shower (and bathtub) in the bathroom. Considering the hotel is "only 93 steps" from the train station, the rooms are reasonably quiet. Our balcony has a double glass door to help the soundproofing.
The hotel has two fairly old and slow elevators facing the lobby, which has a few seats and a window ledge with a decent assortment of brochures. The staff at the hotel was cordial and helpful. There is a fitness room and sauna in the basement, but we did not have a chance to check them out.
The breakfast, which was included with our stay, was a sumptuous feast. We ate well on a variety of meats, fresh fruits, sweet rolls, pickled items, cereals, coffee, pitchers of juice, and much more. You can smear your bread in a very European manner with hazelnut or pate-like spreads. The wait staff was earning their keep as they continually replenished the breakfast buffet table in the morning. You can dine indoors in the 60-seat restaurant or on the pleasant outdoor patio.
