The location is excellent. The front counter service (at least during the day) includes impeccable English. (At night, not much English, but still courteous.) We had a comfortable room (alas, no a/c) overlooking a pleasant courtyard, featuring a charming outdoor restaurant. The daytime clerk (excellent English) was as helpful as he could be. Our only issue was that we should have been strongly discouraged from even trying to drive a car into the restricted zone in center city. Instead, we wasted an entire afternoon of a quite short trip trying to find the hotel, then finally parking outside the medieval walls (at a place, yes, that the clerk recommended). We loved a walk along the ramparts of the old city walls and managed with parking, despite the need to scramble for change to feed meters every 12 hours or so. The hotel: Clean, nicely appointed. The lack of a/c was a bit of a surprise, but we were there in early September, so not so much a problem. I'd recommend it. You certainly can't beat the location -- but plan to park outside the old city.
