We had a reservation elsewhere, that didn't go through, and we only found out about it about a week before we were supposed to arrive. It was the first days of November, so the city was full of tourists, and we started a panicky search for another hotel. From the pictures we saw this was a quirky, little hotel. The truth was that it looked much better in pictures than in reality.
The price was high for the basic room we got. The beds were very hard, and we had trouble sleeping in them for the three days of our stay. The bathroom was nice and clean, with good water pressure.
The hotel has a decent bar and a good restaurant. Although it is a bit pricey, at some point you do not have a choice, because the location is not close to a lot of restaurants.
It is true that the bus stops almost right in front of the hotel and in less than 10 minutes you can be in the city centre, for very cheap, but going back to the hotel can be a bit of a hassle, especially after 9 when buses stop running. Taxis are not that expensive, but we felt it was not really worth it. If you are driving, this is definitely not a problem.
All in all, I think we would have found a hotel in the same price range closer to the city centre. The staff was helpful, but the dealbreaker is the distance to the city centre, unless you are looking for relaxation away from the busy city centre.
