My husband and I got a deal for a room with a terrace. That's really worth the extra few Euros! Despite facing the street, it was quiet. Spacious, clean, great big bathroom with big shower. Beds were really good to sleep in. The breakfast was at a discount - 10 euros for a really good choice - absolutely recomended. Location is excellent - within walking distance from main attractions and city hall and main square. Sure enough, as some else her is stating, there is a bit rough neighborhood close by, but nothing you won't find in any city and we felt safe all the time! And also easy to avoid, by the way.
Internet connection sucked - had to log on every single time I opened my I-pad... Only other little annoying thing was that one of the people in the reception was not very serviceminded. My luggage was lost by the airline and arrived later. The driver called me and said that the hotel reception had no one with my name. This was despite that I had been down there to make sure they could receive it while I was out. Fair enough mistake, but receptionist didn't apologise, just insinuated that I didn't tell them (which I did!). But no big deal, just annoying when you are jet-lagged and want fresh clothes from your luggage... :-)
Absolutely a place I will bothg recomend and go back to!
