Perfect location on the main square , close to walking tours, great restaurants ,pubs and clubs.
the hotel itself is in a beautiful 500 year old building.
we stayed in a standard room on a bed and breakfast basis. the breakfast was good ,buffet style with an egg station. As it is a small hotel there were no queues for breakfast and you have a view of the square.
The room was nicely appointed but it should be noted that standard rooms only have a shower and only two english channels on tv.There is a safein the room which managed to break down as we were leaving which caused a panic as passports money etc were in it,two maintenance men later and our valuables were retrieved.
The hotel is beautiful inside with a fab main staircase and lovely old original features .
The staff were pleasant but seemed relatively young and inexperienced.
We enjoyed the hotel but just didn't get that 5 star feeling, as a previous poster stated there were annoying little inferfections,eg only one satchet of coffee in the room and when i phoned down for more they tried to charge me to sent up 2 cups of coffee,he had to go and negotiate with someone not to charge us ,so was a double room only eligible for one coffee satchel ?.When we arrived to book in the facilities of the hotel where not xplained such as the leasure facilities and we had to ask for tourist maps.
On another occasion i asked directions for a particular pub and the receptionist had no idea where it was , I googled it and found it to be just around the corner off the main square.
I think the hotel could really benefit from hiring a good conscierge as the reception staff did not really inspire confidence.
We didn't stay on the weekend nights when the night club is open which is a shame as it sounds like fun .
Overall i could recommend the hotel as it is a good base and most of the time will be spent out and about exploring the great little hidden away restaurants and bars and the hotels location generally makes up for the other negatives.
