We stayed one night at Hotel Balegra. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room very clean. The bathroom was small, but functional. Breakfast consisted of eggs fried or scrambled fresh for you - if you order a fried egg you get one egg - if you order scrambled it looks like you get a little more. There were a couple of whole grain cold cereals, muesli type, and some Corn Flakes, plus the usual European fare of juice, coffee, tea, cheese, fruit, meats and bread. There is a restaurant onsite that seems to be open most of the time. We arrived late on a Sunday and they were closed. Otherwise we didn't see any restaurants nearby. I'm sure the woman at the front desk could have easily directed us to one.
We were given free tickets for the metro and directions for the way downtown. The metro station is just a short walk away and very easy to find. The ride into town a matter of a few minutes. My only problem with the hotel was the bed was a little too soft for me, but I like a very firm mattress.
