    Not on the main street, so it can easily be missed. Although, it's in a very good location, just seconds away from shopping, restaurants and cultural activities. Rooms and bath are nice & clean, but small. Breakfast is small, however it's very good.

    The hotel is in a super central position, close to all main attractions and public transportation. The room is very big, we'd have liked to have a chair, a small table, somewhere to put the shopping on. The bathroom is also big and very practical....More
