The hotel is very well situated right in the centre of the City adjacent to Anger Square and within an easy walk from the main shopping and the Old Town areas. The hotel has its own Car Park (NB an extra 12 euros per night) but beware it gets very full and on two nights we couldnt park overnight as no spaces left despite checking in mid afternoon and stating we wanted to park whilst there and having had our parking ticket endorsed for multiple entries etc. We then had to relocate to the Anger Square public Car Park which closes between 23:00 and 07:00 so dont go there if you have an early start!!) We had booked a privilege Room so had extra space and in a nice quiet area towards the rear of the hotel. The privilege rooms come with an inclusive mini bar (2 beers, a few soft drinks and juices and water and some crisps and chocolates). You also get better bathrooms (not sure quite what better means as they weren't very large but they were nice and clean and did have a single sink , a bath and a good over bath shower and plenty of toiletries and plentiful towels and bathrobes. No shaver socket just a normal euro plug in the bathroom. The bath towels were however pretty small thin and uninspiring but as there were plenty of them that didnt matter too much. The room also came with "free" wifi (3 euros p day for non privilege rooms) but we had to ask for it and also request a second access code for a second device and getting any more for phones etc didnt seem possible. Probably because their download speed is soooooo slow (0.5 Mbps most of the time and 0.3 Mbps upload) so barely enough to email and surf the web and certainly impossible to use skype or anything useful. Pretty appaling for a City Centre hotel (our son who lives nearby get 10 Mbps as standard!!). When we complained we were told they are awaiting a new cable input????. Some of the reception staff were a bit short and curt but maybe a language issue but others were very plaesant - a bit of ppot luck , and the hotel was clearly very busy at the time of our stays. Breakfast in the morning was pretty good with quite a few tasty hot (usually tepid) dishes available in Chafing dishes etc and nice pastries and plenty of fruits, cold meats etc. However at an extra 17 euros pp I thought it was pretty expensive. A nights B&B in a privilege room including parking and taxes etc works out around 170 Euros for a couple so not what I would call a cheap property but I guess its a good location and in good demand. They really need to sort out the internet connection though which is really very poor for a hotel of this supposed standard
