I spent three nights here in October with a tour group. I wouldn't praise this hotel as highly as many people have done, but certainly my room was fine, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was varied and tasty. Things I wasn't keen on: there was a kettle provided, but it was too big to fit under the sink tap to fill it (so I used my own); the sink in the bathroom was very badly cracked; the television showed nothing but white fuzz on all channels; we had a rather substandard dinner on the one night that we ate in the hotel. The staff were OK, but nothing special.
For me, the big point in this hotel's favour is its location, just minutes from the major sites. Another big plus was an excellent restaurant on the opposite corner where several of us enjoyed a delicious, good-value meal with impeccable service.
