    Very well equipped, bright and comfortable room, good bed, fridge, lots of sockets, additional pillows and blankets. Very helpful and friendly staff. Prime location, right in the center, close to all beautiful places and monuments.

    I highly recommend it, right down town ten minutes from everything and plus Hard Rock Cafe is very near, with very attentive staff, It has been renewed recently both bedrooms and bathrooms. Free WiFi. Bed a bit short for a tall person.

    This hotel is centrally located but basic, reflected in the price. I went as part of a group and check in was efficient considering the number of us. Limited lift access and you need to take one flight of stairs from the street, in case...More

    Very frugal although clean place. Great location, close to train station. Thumbs down: dreadful flight of stairs even before you reach reception desk. Only one electricity plug, no minibar, outdated furniture.

    This hotel is perfectly located. It's close to the hop on hop off buses, great shopping, eating AND the classic sights. While it's not posh, it is extremely clean. Great internet. The desk staff is excellent, particularly Liliana.
