The Monte Cristo is great for two reasons: the staff are exceptionally nice, and the restaurant below is worth your time. Of course the central location is brilliant, everything is within walking distance, and I don't know what it's Klimint in the summer, but at 11pm exactly, the noise in the street stopped...the constant music can be annoying particularly from the next door bar, the Evergreen (which is actually brilliant at night!! Highly recommend, very friendly and fun, late!). But like I said, at 11pm, silence! Sleeping was easy, the bed was large, my TV couldn't get good satellite reception, but the staff fixed it immediately. The room was very tidy, and the shower nice. The fake velvet Klimt painting of the half-nude woman was not kitsch enough to keep, they should take it down. And the staff were great; they called the bus station and taxis for me, they let me pay for the restaurant and hotel bill with my card (normally they are separate), just great service. The restaurant downstairs is quite good; I had a fish soup that was simple and delicious, I had calamar one night (really good!), and fish the other (really good!); great wine, quick service, and breakfast was very generous and delicious. The staff were nice, good-looking, and very friendly. It annoyed me that they had to have an employee harassing people in the street to come eat there, because the food really speaks for itself, and I told the manager that they did not need to do that. But I realize it's very competitive there...but she understood what I meant. English spoken well, and understood. I stayed 2 nights at the end of October. I would definitely stay there again!
