We stayed for two nights in two rooms as a family.
We were disappointed as when we checked in we were told that we would have to change rooms for our double room after the first night. A real hassle when you are sightseeing all day. We had to rush around after the first night and pack our stuff then leave it in our second room, as we couldn't put it straight in the other room they moved us to. The double room we moved to smelt like cooking smells which I think came from the restaurant downstairs. Apart from that the hotel is in a very good location. The rooms are tired but you get what you pay for and as far as central hotels go it was avery reasonable price. They let us store our bags till 6 pm the day we checked out so that was helpful. Reception is on the first floor so getting bags up the first two flights of stairs was a pain, after level 1 there is a tiny lift which fits one person and a bag.
We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel, there is a cafe down the street which was good.
Overall the location was excellent but the beds were old and hard and we didn't sleep well there.
