The staff was friendly and accommodating. It is 2 blocks away from the train station so we were able to save money when we went to the airport. The walls are very thin, I could hear the guy talking in the lobby while in my room.

Located in a busy place, surrounded by shops, safe to walk around at night. Good breakfast, poor net connection. Clean and tidy rooms with hot water.

I would normally give a hotel like this an "average" rating, because it does have its good points, but I felt that at around 80 euros a night it was severely overpriced. It's a 15 minute walk to the main sites, but I wouldn't choose this area again - it's teeming with low-quality clothes retailers who continually pester every foreign-looking... More
