          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.

          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 Only one electricity plug, no minibar, outdated furniture.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.
