Found this Hotel by chance as it is quite well hidden with a small discreet entrance. The staff at check in were very proficient and everything was completed in minutes.
The room was excellent and well appointed with a small balcony and even though it looked out over the street it was very quiet. The bed was comfortable and sheets of a very good quality.
It has a small night club on the ground floor that seemed to be very popular. But the music was not at all intrusive.
Breakfast was Turkish buffet style with a good choice available.
I would definitely recommend this Hotel. It is close to shops and is an old style building with lots of character. It has been renovated but retains its old world charm.
