Walking into this hotel was like walking into the 1980s - or earlier. Not necessarily bad, but didn't make the experience special. The Front Desk staff lost a communication from our Tour Manager (the hotel is used all the time by this company) which led to delay the next morning in our meeting, and concerns for us the night before as we did not know how to contact her. The room was unexceptional and the little balcony - described by the desk staff as a real benefit, gave us a view over the street. The breakfast was also uninspiring. There is a walk uphill to get to the main sights, but I guess if you came by car and had the benefit of easy parking, this location would be a definite plus.
