Did not even stay at this hotel, but was supposed to meet a tour here. Karina the AMAZING receptionist went above and beyond to help us out once our tour had cancelled (and not informed us). Karina made an unpleasant situation so much better, and we can not thank her enough for basically saving our trip. THANK YOU KARINA (she...

As the name suggests, the hotel is very conveniently located in the city centre, among some very pretty streets and quaint little buildings. Coming into the reception area of the hotel the impression was of a very basic facility however we were very impressed on first sight of our room. It was big and attractively furnished. There were two comfortable...

I was a bit wary when we arrived as the outside of the hotel is rather scruffy but everything changes once you are inside. The lobby is small but stylish and one end doubles as a bar. Our room was actually a bit larger than I expected with plenty of room for the two leather armchairs and a table. We...

This hotel has the most comfortable beds! Even the rollaway we got to supplement our party was comfortable. The location was ideal for the night life, and the daytime. The staff are friendly and helpful, and a parking lot is not too far away.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the City Center Hotel. Small and simple, it was in a perfect location, within walking distance to the concert hall, the church, great restaurants, and shops. It had a lovely breakfast included with lots of options. The room was clean, and had everything we needed. The laundromat cafe across the street also has...

City Center Hotel was perfectly located, easy walking distance to everything we needed/wanted. Lots of great restaurants, bars and shopping right at the front door. Located right next to a lovely public plaza as well. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the staff was incredibly nice. Great stay!

Mostly, everything was fine but you will get hammered on the exchange rate as you pay locally and my bill was around £100 more than quoted by Booking.com so my tip, with the way the pound is going, is to pay upfront and avoid this issue. Don't expect Booking.com to help either.
