The hotel is a nice little hotel in the Old Town, easy to get to by foot from the train station (10-15 min walk). And if you are lugging around luggage it's a snap, no hills. The room I got was tiny! But clean and had a shower in the room, the bathroom is down the hall. If you don't mind something like this then it shouldn't be an issue. The only draw-back was on my first night (a Monday), there was a band or performer playing until after midnight and made it a little bit of a hard sleep. But otherwise it was quiet the other nights. The other thing is there was no air-conditioning....it wasn't a huge deal but it would've been nice to have some air movement. This hotel was a good choice and I would recommend it.
