Stayed two nights with my husband and two children aged 8 and 11 on Nov 3/4th 2012. Location is perfect close to the cathedral, and great tapas bars restaurants on the doorstep .
The accommodation is very basic but also very clean and adequate for a short break where you are out all day and really just need somewhere to shower and sleep which is what we were looking for.
The rooms do vary. We had two twin rooms with ensuite on the second floor (there weren't any private quad rooms here so we had to get two rooms to accommodate the four of us). One room was much bigger and nicer than the other and had a little balcony street side which meant it was quite noisy but we liked that as you feel you are in the middle of the city and nightlife (not for you if you want peace and quiet!) The other room was smaller and a bit musty smelling (still very clean though) and no balcony.
I have seen other reviews on here where people said that they didn't feel safe here ?? We thought it was perfectly secure yes the doors are thin but they do lock and my husband mistakenly left an ipad charging in the room and it was still there on our return and our room had been cleaned during that time-very honest of whoever cleaned the room :-)
Reception is manned 24 hours so I don't see what there is to feel unsafe about.Our children were happy to stay here but I wouldn't recommend it in general for young families unless like ours they have travelled a bit (ours have bacpacked in India and Asia so are used to far more basic accomodation than this !)
In summary good basic accommodation, in a fab location, can be a bit noisy (but you are in a city!!), a little bit pricey for what it was but seems on par with other similar budget places in the area.
