We had an excellent stay. Good location, clean, safe and comfortable. We arrived very late in the evening - reception staff were extremely welcoming and had us checked in within minutes. The reception staff deserve a special mention. Very friendly and helpful. They couldn't so enough for us and made booking tickets for various things easy. Rooms are very clean, airy and bright and we loved the minimalist feel. Super comfortable beds which offered a great nights sleep and it was very quiet (5th floor). We booked a triple room which was quite spacious. The only thing that could improve the stay would be a fridge in the room. We used the vending machine in reception for cold drinks daily.
I was a little concerned about some reviews questioning the safety of the area. I need not have worried. At no point did we feel unsafe even late at night. It's a good location with easy access to all areas of the city.
We had breakfast on a few occasions - it's ok, but can work out expensive. If you go out of the hotel, turn left and then left again, there is an amazing patisserie right there. Breakfast for a few euros.
The roof top pool is a bonus. We didn't think we would use it that much, but it was a welcome rest after a days sightseeing. Lovely way to relax and end the day. And what a view! Can get busy in the afternoons.
I would definitely recommend this hotel. Fantastic.
