It's hard to say anything negative about this place because the service was exceptional. The staff was so friendly, accommodating, and helpful...and did so with a genuine smile...not the fake kind they give to you when it's a upscale hotel and they have to kiss up. The hotel's location is very central. You're in a quiet street and walking distance to the main museum, the university, lots of shops and restaurants that seem to turn into happening clubs at night. If you're walker, do take into consideration that it's located on a steep walk up the hill. I loved it cause it's exercise...others with health issues...maybe not. There is no free internet access but they do offer a fairly reasonable rate done on an hourly basis (not consecutive time block). There is no lift and the staircase is tight so take that in mind. The breakfast is very nice considering the rate and again the service is excellent. The coffee isn't instant and the juice comes from a real fruit and not a factory. They also have a tea maker and coffee presser in your room and there's a small bowl of fruit which is very nice since you don't expect anything like this for the rate you pay. The hotel itself though is not for those who are more sensitive to cleanliness. The linen looked clean (but there was no mattress cover) and the sink and shower were also clean. However, everything is old and kind of grungy looking. The carpet in the hotel is really disgusting. Take flip flops with you for sure. I can't say that I would recommend this to a friend because for me it was difficult to get past its poor condition. However, given its overall value, I would recommend it to others on this site if they're ok with the negatives.
