Stayed here on business for 2 nights for an culinary event. Absolutely fantastic stay with really nice room and fabulous breakfast. On my check out date I needed to have a late checkout and the staff so accommodating and more than happy to help although I would suggest you prebook it as it gets very busy. Its about 10 mins...

Very quiet hotel. If you want a good sleep this is the place to be. For us the walk up the hill was too far. A taxi costs only 7,5 to 9 euros. Good bar, good breakfast, good bed in a spacious room and friendly desk.

We had room 216; small but adequate. The bed was too small to accomodate 2 persons; we did not sleep well. There was no airco,... More

However, it was not very far and the walks were very manageable (they also had some bus stoos nearby). The hotel itself was great, very clean... More

Peaceful stay, outside the hustle and bustle of the city, easy access thru cab (appr 8-10 euro). Good facilities, clean room. Recommended! We didn't bookbreakfast but the take out coffee bar assistant was excellent and friendly and coffee excellent quality. Very good price-performance!

Although a good walk into town, don't be put off, because this is a nice quiet hotel with friendly staff and a really good quality breakfast. Our room was very clean, spacious and comfortable.

This hotel is located about a 30 minute walk, 15 minute bus ride or 10 minute taxi ride from the centro area of town. We tried all three methods of transportation and based upon the days events each was very useful and a good value. Rooms are large and well appointed, staff are friendly and very helpful.

Nothing to get too excited about here, previous reviews sum it up, located in suburbs and you need a taxi to get in to city. Fairly bland decor a little sterile. Does not provide 24 hour room service which is a bummer when traveling and just want to relax and have a bite to eat rather than trapese in to... More
