This is potentially a great hotel, but it seems as if it has been years since it was renovated. Some of the rooms stink from years of smoking (including what was supposed to be non smoking room), and since everything is pretty old, it simply doesn't feel clean.
Another big minus, is the face that you can't open the window (well, during the harsh summers winters you wouldn't want to do that, but when the weather is okay, it's the best way to get the stench out).
Another problem: the food. The breakfast is fine, but the lunch and dinner are terrible and overpriced. Often, hotels in such cities tend to be the best places to dine, and since there is nothing in a walking distance near the hotel, I ate there quite a lot. The food in the city is cheaper and better.
All and all this is a very nice hotel, with very friendly staff, but it's really overpriced and in need of urgent renovations.
