We were not quite sure what to expect when we checked in and were pleasantly surprised. Central city location, top-flight room, excellent breakfast, attractive common areas, attentive staff. Overall a very positive experience. A shame we could not stay longer.

Stayed here for 1 night in October 2016. The hotel is located in an impressive old building, but not too close to the main attractions of the city - so be prepared to take a cab. Our room was great, very comfortable and with a huge bathroom. Friendly and efficient staff.
