We were aware that the hotel was near the busy bars street and accepted the noisy festivities most nights. We were part of it but only until 1.00am or so (some of the noise went on until 5.00am.) But heh, if we wanted a quiet holiday we would have gone for a quiet mountain break. The balcony is small but it is rather nice sipping a wine watching the world go by. We are both in our seventies.
