The hotel is located in a quiet area up the hill from the main part of the city. It took about 20 minutes to walk down the hill to the city centre, and it was a 7 Euro taxi ride home. You can also take the bus although we didn’t end up investigating this option during our stay.
The hotel is clean and modern with nice rooms and friendly front desk staff. The beds are moderately comfortable (but not terribly cozy) and the pillows are thin.
The weather was warm for December (+23C during the day) and our room was very warm and unfortunately the cooling system would only put out warm air. We left the balcony door open at night but the consequential street noise was unfortunate.
The walls are a bit thin and there is a fair amount of sound transmission between rooms. The hardwood floors are nice but when someone next door is wearing high heels the clacking does get a bit annoying.
Parking is free out front and the Internet is also free and fast.
The staff are great, very friendly and pointed out all of the highlights on the map on what we should see in town, directions for transit and walking, and always greeted us with a smile when we entered the hotel.
Overall a very nice hotel with great staff, good location, and I would recommend this property.
