For god's sake, do not pay good money to stay in this rat hole until at least summer 2013 when they may have finished the intrusive building work. Being awaken at 7:30am every morning by the drilling and banging is bad enough, but having to pay for the privilege is even worse and don't even get me started on the state of the reception, hallways, stairs. The best room in the hotel was the lift - very nice. The room had very poor tv reception, the aircon/heater didn't work, the bedside lights didn't work - carry on abroad style. However, the location and surrounding area (with cafe's, markets, restaurants, etc.) is perfect and ideal for walking and exploring. You just have to ignore the drunken tramps that wee in the doorways outside and shout a lot - part of the charm maybe. My advice, generally a good area to stay but choose a different hotel.
