Very pleasant hotel in an excellent location close to several restaurants and food stores. Both atmosphere and staff are top notch. The rooms are fairly large (we had two separate rooms during our stay) and comfortable. the Library Room bar is also a great spot to relax after a busy day, here also the staff were very friendly.

The hotel was easy to find and in a great location. My only complaint was the fact that some of the rooms are right above a bar that is very loud. We had to change rooms because of it. But the clerks were very understanding and moved us right away. The beds were actually pretty decent - which is usually... More

The hotel has a very central location, the price is good and the staff is very polite. From the day we arrived the staff did all they could to make us satisfied. The breakfast staff likewise and the meal was excellent. But it is very much noise during the nights from bars and restaurant.

This is THE hotel to stay in if you want a central location and easy walking distance to all the main atractions. I was travelling on my own and chose a double room, it was comfortable and clean with free wifi but lighting in the room was awful. Staff weren't particularly forthcoming with helpful information but if you've done your... More

Good points, excellent location, cheap, good standard. Bad points unfriendly staff and very disorganised. Sunday morning 30 people trying to check out with only one person on front desk. Also bar staff are a bit snooty.
