Great experience

Great value for price, huge room, very friendly and helpful hotel staff. The hotel is both close to the city centre and not too close to avoid the noise and agitation, it is very neat and well equipped.

Centrally located and easy to walk to attractions and restaurants. Rooms pleasant n loved the shampoo etc. Also has a Spa but did not use it. Breakfast had the tastiest made in house baked goods. The pistachio tart! Also provided a healthy variety of foods at breakfast. Staff very attentive. Dinner was overpriced but very good. Would definitely stay there again.

We stay there 4 nights with all the family. Rooms are very clean and quite large. For winter time, there is might a lack of light since the building configuration doesn’t allow large windows. Location is quite convenient and for those who don’t like walking there is a City free shuttle bus at 100 m from the hotel departing every 20 minutes. Breakfast is Good
