the location is good. right in the middle of old town with lots of bars and restaurants. unfortunately this hotel is way overpriced. 140$ for a king or queen with private bath is a good deal in a regular place, but this hotel does not have much to offer. not only is it very noisy with train traffic troughout the night, but the rooms are very hot and old. first room we got was the king size bed, the faucet ran non stop. hard to believe that staff did not notice this when they cleaned the room? this is a historic hotel and we were not looking for modern furniture etc, but it was just very basic, including the continental breakfast which we left and ate at another place. would not stay here again.
