The location of this hotel is excellent. It is very easy to get to from the airport and it is only a short walking distance away from the main areas for sightseeing, shopping and eating out. We'd asked for a quiet room and were not disturbed by any outside noise (apart from the quite loud humming from a ventilator that was easy to block out). The room was spacious with a very comfortable mattress. The bathroom was huge and adequate but lacked enough hooks for hanging up towels (there is just one). The Library Bar in the first floor is a pleasant and cosy hangout for a drink. The only disappointment was the breakfast. While the continental breakfast is reasonably priced at 5 Euros, we didn't expect factory-produced pastries and scones still in their original packaging. With such a central location and so many outstanding food outlets nearby, sourcing freshly baked pastries and bread shouldn't be too difficult. -
I was very concerned at the check-out to be told that somebody else had just checked out using our room number and signing my credit card bill. As far as I can see, this didn't cause me any financial loss (the bill was accurately settled) but I feel uncomfortable that they didn't check the credentials more carefully and didn't ask for a pin code. I would have also expected the receptionist to be less blasé about it.
