I had a room on the 5th floor with air condition and a view over the inner court yard. Nice an quiet!
The room was ok, good bed and pillows. Tiny towels (quickly becoming one of my biggest gripes with hotels..... I have long hair and one bath towel, the size of a hand towel and a hand towel the size of large handkerchief is just not enough !!) but an excellent magnifying mirror and a mirror on the bathroom door, so I could check my back before leaving.
The other thing I quite liked, was their solution for Wifi. Basic connection is free and one can check mail and read the news. For Skype and video watching the offer an upgrade for 6 Euros per night. I think that is a good compromise.
A little food &beverage rant:
I decided not to book the breakfast buffet at 17 Euros. Ridiculous price for a very average looking offer. Instead I went to one of the cafes close by or the new organic shop across the road for some lovely treats at a fraction of the price.
The same goes for the prices on the wine menu. Seriously? 4 Euros for a very average 0.1 cl glass of wine....... this does not make economical sense when there are so many bars and restaurants so close by. No surprise that the hotel bar was close to empty most of the time
Staff were helpful and everything was clean.
Overall a good stay
