The Best Western Blue Square was a great hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful with the public transportation system to get to Dam Square.
Breakfast was good but it did cost about 15 Euro, but good variety.
The room was the size of a North American hotel room and it was very clean. The bathroom was also very clean. The bed and pillows were good as well.
Location was not ideal for getting to Dam Square or the train station. We had to take a cab to get to the hotel and after that we took the bus.
There was a good Eqyptian style restaurant across the street.
Liked - Helpful staff, good breakfast and room
Disliked - Location; having to take the bus
