The location of this hotel is ideal for walking around the city and has front lobby access to the trams/taxis etc. The people working at the tourist desk are great - really helpful informative and friendly. The rooms themselves are a bit tired and dated but clean throughout. We had a room with 2 double beds as we were a family of four. The outside noise on a weekend can be heard at times throughout the night as you are right in city centre but is not overly worrying just something to be aware of if you are a light sleeper! We really loved the location but would have preferred the option of an extra room as travelling with kids.
