We wanted a good hotel situated near the underground with major attractions not far away from it. And it perfectly fits this requirement. It's just opposite the underground station, there is a bus stop near it, the old town is within 15-20 min. walk and the street itself is a busy shopping street.
The hotel is very traditional and a bit old-fashioned, an average visitor is a 60+ European and it has certain advantages - it's a quiet and respectable place with good service.
Good breakfast, quite a lot of food to choose from, although not varied from day to day.
The rooms not big and quite cosy, but the bathroom (just a shower and a sink) was incredibly tiny, they have a separate lavatory, which is also very small and what is more - NOT heated. The interior is a bit shabby, although you can see some traces of renovation.
We accepted their offer to have a New Year dinner at their restaurant. It was a 4 course set menu at 49€ per person not including drinks. The decoration was lovely, the service prompt and friendly, the food delicious! We went for a veal steak with pumpkin seed crust for the main course, it was fantastic!
Wi-fi was free and the speed was OK, even in our room on the 5-th floor, I heard some people complain that they didn't have wi-fi in their rooms and had to go to the bar, but it wasn't our case. The only problem - you have to have a new password every 24 hours.
All in all I'd recommend this hotel if you want something quiet and decent, good value for money (though some people say it's a bit pricy, but it was the New Year period who could blame them for charging more?)
