We are a family with two kids in primary school, and we spent a wonderful week in apartment 44 -- it was perfect for us. The apartment is part of with Hotel Central, which means there is daily maid service and light breakfast in the morning. The front desk staff is happy to answer questions, provide advice and solve problems.... More

We chose the hotel for it's location, which was fabulous, on the edge of the old town. The rooms are very small, but spotlessly clean, and the staff were very friendly. Ideal for a short stopover.Can be noisy late on weekend nights, but you're well above the noise, so not a big deal!

I found the staff so helpful and very friendly - nothing was too much trouble and they all made me feel extremely welcome!

This was an odd place, and too expensive for what it was. The room was tiny and I couldn't believe when we checked out that there were two further levels of budget underneath the one we chose, the bottom tier must be a coffin. The breakfast is just breads and spreads and you have to take it in your tiny... More

Get good, clear directions before starting out for the hotel. We were on public transportation and then walking from the stop, dragging our bags, so every step we spent lost (there were many!) was a bigger deal. It's off the main street, in the upper floors of a building not marked as a hotel, so you're not going to just... More
