Highly recommended
Rooms were basic but very comfortable, especially the bedding - got consecutive good nights sleep, aided by blackout curtains. Excellent buffet breakfast; great quality and selection. Very tasty! And reception staff were so helpful, allowing me to store my luggage both on day of arrival and departure. Really convenient location for access to all the sights and a metro station very close. Bonus was not being in a street with trams running along, so nice and quiet. Highly recommend this hotel and I’d stay again without hesitation.
