Clean, simple hotel very close to the airport. Noise of airplanes was not very disturbing though. Nice pool with bar too. Small cons: you had to keep the shower handheld. This is a problem I read in other comments, so they don't seem to willing to do something about it. Also, shower gel dispensers were empty. Very unnecessary in my opinion.

We used this hotel to stay near the airport (we had to collect our Hertz car the next day in the morning). It is a good choice. Very near to the airport (about 5 minutes by taxi, 8 EUR) and you can use the bus the next day to return to the airport and pick up your car. I would reccomend this hotel only as a service hotel if you need to be near the airport. The hotel has also a good and cheap restaurant.
