This is an older hotel, ageing furnishings but clean, odorless with very comfortable bedding....you can be sure to get a good rest. Breakfast is included and is generous, excellent coffee. There is a cozy minibar in the lobby and at reception staff is very helpful with anything you might need. Great choice of hotel if you like exploring on foot... More

The room was basic but comfortable. The food was excellent. I would recommend this hotel if on a limited budget. It is also close to the Concert Hall, city centre and the harbour. I was only there for four nights and had no complaints.

A nice, personal little hotel, right at the heart of the City Centre. Rooms were comfortable and clean. My wife and I stayed there in February 2015 and liked it so much that we returned for another stay in Feb 2016. Would strongly recommend this hotel for couples on a budget. As others have said, beware of staying Friday or... More

don't stay there for friday or saturday nignt. It i s so noisy in the street downstairs, in the front and in the backside because of a bar or a discotec just nextdoor to the hotel. It is a pity because the rooms are so comfortable with everything we need.

We were there in early April and it was warm in the room. We had to open the window and it was fine. For reference we... More

Great hotel for pick up points for bus excursions, shops and restaurants. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The cleanliness of the room was not up to standard, the staff there don't seem to clean everyday. The beds were very comfy! The breakfast buffet could have had more choice as well. It is is quite noisy outside due to... More
