Overall the hotel was good. Staff were very helpful and kind, hotel was clean overall, including rooms and bathrooms. Our price included breakfast which was OK, not as plenty as buffets are in some higher class hotels, but still it was OK.There was bread, cereals, yogurt, fruits etc.
Location is good in the corner of old town. Our room was also quiet, as it was not facing the street. Do not know if rooms on street side are also quiet or not.
Minus is that toilet/bathroom is small, but it is quite normal in hotels operating in old building in southern Europe. Also from our room there were basically no views, you could only see wall of another building just 3 meters from our window. But as we really booked this hotel only for a place to sleep, it did not bother us.
