That's really a very good place to stay for a few days. It's got a perfect location: good zone, near the centre with a lot of restaurants,pubs... Very beautiful also the chamber, it's got the free Wi-Fi (very useful), TV, minibar... The bed's are comfortable and the bathroom isn't to big but not too small.
