Our rooms are clean, light and airy with plenty of room. They have large opening windows with venetian blinds and a nice view and contain a mini-fridge, a large flat-screen TV with some British channels and with ports (so you can take a cable to attach to your laptop), table and chairs, armchair, wardrobe, and a night stand. The wardrobes are lockable, and there are lockable cupboards and a safe elsewhere for client use. The rooms are centrally heated in cooler weather. Free WIFI is included, but cannot be accessed until the morning after arrival when the code can be obtained.

You can book a family room with 2 beds for an accompanying person. This extra person is charged 30 Euro per day for the bed and standard hospital food. If this room is required, please allow more lead up time as this room gets booked quickly.

We have a new central sterilization department, which allows for top quality instrument preparation and low incidence of wound infection (well below average). Every step within the instrument circulation is checked and electronically proved. Quality control is according to ISO 13485.

The system of quality control used is ISO 2001
