Stayed here for a week with two friends in July 2014 - our overall impression was a good hotel and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't have bizarrely high expectations (such as complaining about dust on the artificial flowers...!). The staff were extremely helpful with requests and advice for local sightseeing/transport/good value restaurants etc and made us feel very welcome. The hotel felt secure, the beds/bathroom were attended to daily and air con made sleeping comfortable (albeit controlled from reception). The shutters were almost blackout so you aren't woken at the crack of dawn by hot sunlight and breakfast was perfectly adequate and served for a good length of time (7-10am).
Some reviews complain about the hotel's location, however we found it to be very good - five minutes from the train/bus station and only about 15-20 min amble through beautiful old streets to lots of recommended sightseeing spots and a wide range of restaurants/cafes in the area.
Based on our visit we would say that this is a decent hotel to stay in, just be aware that there may be a 6 Euro per person 'city tax' charge, which you will need to fork out for upon checkout.
