We stayed at the Hotel Aurora which is literally right across the street from the train station which was awesome after traveling all day!
The lobby and staff was nice and off of the breakfast area is an outside dining area along with a grassy area that has chairs and a chase to sit in.
The rooms are adequate with a frig and a safe. The shower is a bit small, but there is a hair dryer and an outlet to plug in curlers or shavers. I mention this as I found many European hotels lack this. There is a bit of an echo in the halls and unfortunately we had obnoxious neighbors one of the nights but was not so the second night.
The breakfast was awesome and it was so nice to have protein such as eggs, meats am cheeses! There was also cereal, breads, pastries, yogurt and espresso!
Overall, it was a decent place to stay!
