Spent 3 days staying at this hotel end of Nov 2012 with 2 of my friends. The hotel is in good walking distance to the centre - trams come every few minutes to take you further into the centre or across the river. There are very poor parts, but we didn't realise that only a 5 minute walk in the opposite direction (where xmas market is) is the posh bit with some lovely shops and a ice bar. Xmas market was lovely too, gets you in a christmassy mood, so do go there around nov/dec time.
Ice bar was only 3euros which incl 2 drinks. The hotel is right by the national museum about a 2 minute walk. Rooms were spacious and good for the money you pay...bath, is a jacuzzi bath..beds are comfy. Don't be expecting wild nights at this hotel as we found, its a long way from any kind of nightlife - you ask for a club and it will be a strip club. Food is so cheap here. Receptionist was lovely and kind, helped us girls out a lot. Would return in summer to see what it is like then!
