The hotel is just outside the main heart of the city but within easy walking distance. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We arrived before we could check in, but this was not a problem, the lady at reception gave us a map, showed us areas of interest and said to explore the city and to come back when... More

Good location and staff very helpful, excellent if you are travelling with kids because a swimming pool and indoor playing area, but do not expect much from the hotel itself, kind of old and could be better maintained.
