This hotel is just along from the palace, the rooms are small but beds comfortable. Bathrooms clean, good showers. Good kitchen facilities. Excellent value for money. Staff helpful. Close to old town for restaurants, boutique shopping.

A cross between a hostel and a hotel. Great location and great place to stay if on a budget. Rooms and beds fine. Bit of a rabbit warren, but once you work that out, it is fine. Brekky is pretty good.

We spent four nights in this hotel in a very spacious room for two. Facilities we more than adequate and very clean. Breakfast was as expected but basic. Staff were helpful. Also hotel was brilliant for location. Would definitely stay here again.

This hostel is very centrally located and within walking distance to basically everything we wanted to do, just around the corner from the palace. The staff was extremely helpful and welcoming. One woman really went above and beyond and helped my brother locate his phone that he lost the night before. We had a great stay here, for the price,... More

The hotel is under refit and as I've checked-in I was assigned a room in a different building round the same corner...very souspicious....The place was sort of "working in progress" and the bathroom in the room was smelly. I've complained at the reception and they told me they were fully booked and I should have to change room twice (my... More

I stayed at this hotel mid February for two days and was sorely disappointed. While the building itself is in good condition and they seem to maintain it, the cleanliness is awful. We have stayed at a number of budget places and this had by far been the most un enjoyable. The bed we had stank like dirty gym socks... More

Stayed in a dorm room in July 2014 for two nights. Room was musty, no ventilation, no natural light, and half the lights in the room didn't work either. It had a very bad smell unlike anything I've experienced before (as if it was coming from the walls, not from a person or any body's belongings). When we complained to... More
