The hotel is centrally located (we mean this literally: just around the corner of the main square), which is definitely its main advantage. Superior rooms are ample and clean in general, but they share the same feature of public areas: you feel in an "old" hotel all the time, pretty much 80s (or early 90s) style, but that looks dated now, and could do with some refurbishing. Our room on the third floor had a big window, but it basically faced a wall (acceptable only as we stayed there for two nights, on business, and were out of the room the whole day). The TV set was placed in a very awkward way, so that you couldn't watch just lying on the bed. The pool is fine, with warm water and nice views. Breakfast has a good selection and variety of items, even if coffee cups are small (you have to get two, at least, for decently sized coffee with milk). Customer attention is OK, though calling from outside the hotel to a room can be tiresome (no direct room access, they take their time to answer, keep you on hold, etc). All in all, it is a sensible option for a short business stay right in the center of the city (still, for that kind of trip, and based on value for money, next time we will consider newly opened hotels like Urban Express or Orfeo, which are just a couple of blocks away).
