I booked this hotel for me and 10 friends for a short break. The rate was very reasonable, but the reviews did give me cause for concern.
I can honestly say, there was no need for any concern. The hotel is located less than 5 minutes from the main square and most streets inside the old town area are a very short walk away.
The reception area is clean, the reception staff are very friendly and helpful, and the hotel has free wifi throughout (a really good plus point in my opinion).
We had triple bedrooms which had more than enough space for 3 of us. The room had a small Juliette type balcony, fridge, TV with cable, cupboard space with hangers, a safety deposit box (very good), decent air conditioning and a clean and stocked bathroom.
The shower was reasonable and clean, the toilet clean, and there was also a bidet and hairdryer too. Bathroom was absolutely fine.
Bed was comfortable although pillows a little soft (minor point).
All in all it's difficult to fault this hotel for the value and location it provides. It looked like the corridors had recently been decorated, but the 5th floor was still in the process of being finished. We stayed on floor 4.
We also didn’t see a single cockroach, or anything that would give you the impression the hotel was in any way dirty as previous reviews have stated. The hotel bar provides breakfast, although our rate didn’t include this, so I can’t comment on the quality of food, but they sell water at €1 a bottle, which is reasonable. There is a Dia a short walk away over the bridge to allow you to stock up on food and drink should you want.
I'd stay again.
