Stayed Fri & Sat nights with a group of friends. Perfect location right next to the Cathedral (see photo from my room) and in the heart of the city. The 1960s building was never an architectural gem and is looking dated now, but inside it is comfortable and the service was very good. The à la carte dinner on Friday was good (though the wine prices are steep even by hotel standards), but the set meal 'banquet' on Saturday was bland and boring.
