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.

On arrival we were told that the hotel was full for that night and we should leave our luggage there and sleep at another hotel a few streets away! Staff were indifferent, although they did send someone with us to find the other hotel where we... More

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

This hotel has an excellent location and is very good value considering the rate. Very clean rooms. The english of several of the staff is not that good but they are friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is basic but full of stuff that is good for you. I.e. no bacon or greasy sausages but lots of fresh vegetables and... More
