This hotel is wonderfully placed, right in front of the Cathedral. It is in the very heart of the Gothic area and therefore it is perfect to explore it on foot. On the negative side, I'd say that they are expensive (i.e. you pay just for the location and the view); the décor is a bit tired especially in the communal areas, the internet connection is often lost and it is very slow. Service is hit and miss, it depends on who you deal with. We had the superior room with terrace and view on the Cathedral; absolutely superb. However, when we got it it was stuffy and hot (indicating that it had not been used for a while, but more importantly that they did not prepare it for us). In my opinion, it is a bit overpriced, unless you care for nothing but the view and the location.
