The best thing about this hotel is it's location--in the heart of the city center and close to everything yet quiet; there was no noise to be heard at night. The rooms are decent sized with a spacious bathroom, but the service was somewhat uneven with an indifferent staff--ask for a tea kettle if you want one in your room. When we were there, the hotel seemed a bit too quiet--not sure if they are struggling in the current economy; the bars and restaurants seemed empty; however, the price was fantastic. If you are there in the summer and need to use the A/C, please be warned that it does emit a small green light at night that may bug those of you that prefer a darkened room. This hotel will meet your needs at a great price point if you want a decent central place to stay, are happy eating your meals out (at the tons of options even on the same block), and have minimal service needs.
