We were slightly disappointed to be given a room with no view only one side window so close to the next building that you had to lean out and look up to see what the weather was like! But it was a very good size suite lovely large bed with double sinks in the bathroom and we decided it would at least be quiet.
The hotel staff were friendly and helpful pointing out the sights and helping with the room safe.
As others have said the big plus is the location. Handy for all the main tourist areas. A very nice coffee shop across the road to the right Matamala did great coffee and pastries for breakfast and a good line in Tapas at lunch time. Obama's bar next to the hotel also good ,nice selection of beers and cocktails and food tho we didn't eat there. We also had a lovely meal in a small restaurant somewhere behind the Gothic cathedral called Sukor.
We liked the atmosphere of the hotel very individual decor especially the staircase. Didn't have a "chain" feel. Would recommend as a good place to explore a very distinctive city.
