We found The Central Hotel to be very convenient as it is close to the city centre and there are many bars and restaurants nearby. The rooms are large and spotlessly clean and the staff could not have been more helpful. There's a wide choice of food at breakfast, although a good cup of tea would have been welcome!

What was really bad was the locking mechanisms for the rooms: You couldn't lock the door and several times the door just popped one during the night. We resorted to blocking the door with luggage, but...
