The last time we stayed here was just 10 years ago and they have updated the rooms since then.

A good hotel with good location, excellent service and helpful staff. Walking distance yo most tourists attractions, metro and tram. Airport shuttle is useful when you arrive tired however on return you can hire a taxi through the hotel which is cheaper.
