I booked here because I was on a tight budget and I was pleasantly surprised with the standard of the accommodation and its great location (I would say that everywhere is within walking distance!).
The room was nicely decorated and extremely clean with airconditiong and a window with a view out onto a garden. Breakfast was a simple continental buffet with nice, fresh food and was served in a room with an incredible panoramic view of the city (probably worth the money just to eat breakfast here!).
I did have a couple of issues whilst here which I've been debating about including in my review as it wasn't entirely at the fault of the hotel but I thought people should know. The hotel, as it is good for those on a budget, does accommodate large groups. While I was staying there, there was a large group of teenage school children on a school trip staying in all the rooms surrounding mine. I was woken at 7.30am each morning by their teachers banging on their doors and shouting their names loudly to wake them up which also woke me up and was also woken at night when they were knocking on each others' doors. When I went to get breakfast at 8am (as I was awake from the noise anyway) there wasn't really anywhere to sit because it was full of the group and had to manoeuvre through to find a table at the back.
When I checked out, the staff seemed quite on edge as a large number of the group were in reception and when I asked if they had change for a note, I was curtly waved away whilst they dealt with the group which wasn't ideal. A "no, sorry" would have been fine.
Except for the noise and general mayhem caused by the school group, I liked it here but I probably wouldn't stay again.
