Although I was not happy with the hotel I will still describe the positives as well as the negatives.
Location is very close to great shopping, historical interests and good dining
Free parking if you can find it is available on the street (I was fortunate to find) paid parking is reasonable (10 euro/day)
The hotel and rooms were clean
If it had been a 4 star the prices was reasonable
Clearly not a four star as advertised.
The breakfast quality was mediocre.
The rooms were very small and the bathrooms were so small it was uncomfortable to use.
The shower doors leaked due to poor installation.
The beds were not comfortable.
The wi-fi in the rooms was poor (they did inform you of this when you checked-in) although it still was not acceptable for a listed 4 star hotel.
Must have the room key plugged in for the outlets to work. This prevented phones,iPad etc. from being charged while in town. Not a big deal just annoying
The staff was not friendly, not rude but certainly not welcoming
Overall I would not recommend
