Made booking after seeing reviews on this site. The location is good its close to the main train station and not far from shoping areas. If you want to do a canel cruise the boats are just across the road. We stayed in room 404 on the 4th floor and found it very small compared to other hotels. Was a bit of squeeze with 2 suitcases but managed to sort problem off. The staff were very friendly and helpfull. Breakfast was basic bread cheese jam eggs cereal coffee and tea . If like to eat out would suggest you go to Joshlota a small spanish style restaurant foods is good and cheap (try meat skewer or chicken skewer about E8.50). Turn left from hotel walk down to next cross road turn left til come to cross street is on left across from coffee shop.
All in all the hotel is basic and clean and if looking for cheap accomodation in heart of town is worth visiting. Also walk across road from hotel and look at it you are not seeing things the building is on a lean to the left its part of what they call the drunken buildings.
Also if want to travel around use all day passes for trams can be purchased at main train station.
