I've stayed in this hotel twice already! It's in an excellent location, safe neighbhorhood, and has all the neccesities to be a tourist hotel without breaking the bank. Just be aware that the noise can be slighty loud during peak season because your close to a couple bars. You can always take a shuttle bus from the airport directly across the street to this hotel.
Word to the wise, If using the internet stick to the wifi. We used the ethernet cord thinking it was also free. We had a bill of 25.00. Overall, It's a great hotel and the breakfast is not bad as well. However, you can walk down the street and get a cheap breakfast for 4 euros. This place I"m referring to is like a cafeteria style place. I really wish that I remembered the name. *sorry about that)
Oh yeah, the room is a little small compared to american hotels. But this should be expected when traveling to any european hotel.
Overall, great place and you will love the value of it.
