The hotel is excellent located, in the city center, few steps away from the main attractions. The rooms are very nice, big enough and with an excellent bed. The staff is very polite,friendly and ready in any moment to help you. The pool is clean and nice. Tasty breakfast and a very good restaurant for lunch and dinner.

Cold water in the pool (under 18 degrees), led nonfunctional air currents along insulated room window. Although the hotel promoted heated pool at the check-in I was informed that the pool does not work.
