We walked to the hotel from the train station, and it was a bit of a walk but reasonably close. The hotel is very central, close to many amenities. That was good for us, since we didn't have transportation.
The room we were given was on the third floor at the back. It was clean, and had nice linens, but was pretty cramped. Not much room for anything but a bed, and since we were on the top floor we had slanted ceilings to contend with (not a problem for me, but my partner is 6 feet tall and bumped his head a few times). The bathroom was the nicest surprise: well appointed, seemed very new, and was spacious. The bed wasn't particularly comfortable, but I've had worse.
I didn't think the noise would be an issue for us (especially as we were at the back), but it was. We were woken up three times between midnight and 8am by shouting on the streets (and they weren't just passers-by--they were having shouting matches down there). It was very loud--I don't normally wake up to street noise.
Overall, I'd say it's good value considering the price, cleanliness, and central location. However, if you really need a good night's sleep, I'd probably look elsewhere.
