The location is excellent, just adjacent to a square with bars and restaurants, and within walking distance of all the major attractions and close to the underground. The hotel itself is a bit of a mixed bag. The lobby and breakfast room is pleasant and looks to have been fairly recently updated. Our particular room was fairly sparse on first appearances, with no natural light and poor electric lighting, and seemed a bit depressing. However, it was clean and had all the facilities you would need. The free wifi worked all the time, and the breakfast (included with our room rate) was pretty decent. The staff were all friendly and welcoming. I'd recommend this hotel if you just need a base and somewhere to sleep on a short break - it's nothing special but perfectly adequate given the price, and the location is hard to beat.
