Location is very convenient -- lots of pubs and shops nearby, views of the Castle from the hotel. Close to the main tourist area, but just off the center enough to be a bit more low key. Rooms are not luxury, but are servicable - no extras here.
There is air conditioning only in the lobby areas. Be aware if you are sensitive to noise or have allergies.
Breakfast could be better. It's an odd combination of cooked to order and buffet. The quality is not quite up to par - they would be better off with a full buffet. Service is a bit disorganized.
There are steps up into the lobby - basically a full flight of tile steps which can be tricky with bags. There is a ramp to the left of the lobby (outside) that they don't see to tell anyone about, but does make getting big bags much easier.
There are two computers for guest use on the upper lobby, and wireless throughout.
