I stayed here for a night in January 2014 with my girlfriend. We walked to the hotel from the train station using clear instructions on the hotel's website. The location is awesome. We never used any sort of transport at all and were able to walk to all the main sights.
The thing that stuck out the most when we arrived was how friendly the lady at reception was. We weren't able to check in yet, but she let us leave our bags there, provided us with a map and gave us a run down of what to see.
The room itself was pretty nice. The bed was huge and, for a tall couple, much appreciated. The mini-bar was pretty cheap, although we didn't use it.
Our main criticism was that we couldn't use the Wi-Fi in our rooms. We had to sit in the reception area to use it. I think this should be stated on the website, given it is a major selling point.
There was also a man at reception who was quite rude when we checked out. I'd politely ask him a question after he acknowledged me and he would either ignore me and continue with what he was doing or get back to me an awkwardley long time later, say 30 seconds or so. It just came across as rude, which was disappointing because the lately the day before was so helpful and friendly.
The breakfast was average. Wasn't anything to rave about, but good enough.
But despite those things, I'd stay there again. It was good value for money and in such a great position, it would be hard not to. The lady on the first day also created such a good impression of the hotel for us, it was hard for us not to like our stay, despite the other minor annoyances. I really wish I could remember her name!
