Very conveniently located. It's about a 5 min walk from the main train station and a beautiful walk to all the major site seeing attractions. The hotel itself has a lot of character and is interestingly decorated from head to toe. The bathroom seemed to be newly renovated with big clean bathtub despite the room being a bit older. The Hotel staff was overall friendly, except for the man taking the late night evening shift. He was a bit of a square. But other than that, the receptionists during the day were very friendly and helpful in giving tips and making restaurant reservations for us. Also the breakfast waiter is very pleasant and the coffee was decent. Don't expect too much from the breakfast. Overall, it was a great place to stay and I would come back again.
