The building and the room we had both seemed a bit jaded and in need of a refurb, but I have to say it was spotlessly clean and our double room was a good size with a nice en suite with a great shower over the bath. Very soft bed. It was a bit noisy from the trams which ran right by the hotel at the front, although they didn't run too late. (2 euros 80 each way for the 20 minute trip into the city centre) Probably quieter if you get a room at the back of the hotel. Staff were friendly and polite and spoke excellent English. Fantastic buffet breakfast- you won't go hungry! Reasonable bar prices.
