The Best Western Park Hotel Continental gives a first impression of somewhat outdated in its appearance of an unfriendly-looking concrete building of the 70ties. The Best Western has over 50 rooms. A need for renewal is apparent everywhere. The lobby is large in size with a large reception desk. A slightly muff smell was felt in the corridors and not helped by the rainy and cold October weather. Some improvements are needed from the aging elevator, the dark corridors to the bath room.
The rooms are spacious. The double bed is actually king size and comfortable. The equipment consists of a desk and two chairs. The furniture as well are becoming outdated. The cleanliness is good. The room was well heated end of October. A kettle for making tea and coffee is available. Wi-Fi worked flawlessly.
Breakfast was just OK for a 4-star hotel. The coffee was made from concentrate, and had a miserable taste. If already opting for self-service, then the coffee should be available from the espresso machine from freshly ground coffee beans. The hotel's restaurant was closed since end of summer. Fortunately, there is on the opposite street the Hotel Forte del 48 an excellent restaurant. Nearby is as well a Pizzeria.
To highlight is that the staff is extremely dedicated and helpful. Free parking is available at the hotel available. Hotel prices were reasonable in October. To keep the 4-star standard some improvement is definite needed. less
