We have just returned from a five night stay at the hotel Borg and have to say that we couldn't have been happier with the place. The location is simply perfect, a stones throw away from some fantastic restaurants and bars and within easy walking distance of the shopping areas. I do note that some other reviews make mention of the fact that it can be noisy outside on Friday and Saturday nights but we didnt notice any problems (perhaps because our room was at the far side of the hotel) but in my view a little bit of noise is a worth while price to pay for such a brilliant central location. I can see why this may not suit everyone so if you are looking for a quiet location and you yourself do not intend to participate in the nightlife then perhaps look elsewhere but, if like us, you like a few drinks in lively bars while on holiday then get booking now.
We only had breakfast once in the hotel and it was nothing to write home about - standard hotel fare - but there are loads of little cafe's a mere couple of minutes away who have everything you could ask for and more on the menu so this didnt bother us in the slightest.
We found the hotel staff friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Could not fault them in the slighest.
