Going on TripAdvisor, we chose this hotel and were glad we did. Just back from this weekend this is a lovely small hotel, opposite a lovely square where they hold a market on Saturdays with Bars & Restaurant all along the far side so great for a night cap or lunchtime drink or just a wander round if you dont want to go too far. Easy walk from the Station if your luggage isn't too cumbersome, failing that a 8 euro taxi ride.
We were in room 11 which was extremely comfortable and reasonably sized. This hotel is opposite the Bus Station and our room was facing it. The double-glazing is so good we could hear no noise whatever during the night nor any noise from the road.
Lovely comfortable bed, lovely big wardrobe and the bathroom was perfect with a great shower or bath, whatever you preferred. Plenty of storage for cases, plus a couple of chairs and small desk.
If they had feather pillows on the beds I'd be in 7th heaven but I know the trend is to provide the ant-allergies ones. Perhaps I should of asked if they had any, will always do that from now on.
Breakfast was amazing. Helped ourselves to lovely fresh cheeses, salami, ham, fresh fruit plus fruit purees, prunes, apricots, yoghurts, cereal, boiled eggs and loads of freshly baked croissants, rolls, bread plus more. Couldn't fault it in any way. The lady who I assumed owned the hotel brought us as many pots of tea as we wanted plus you helped yourself to fresh orange too.
As travelers have said before, this hotel has been converted from an old house so stairs are be narrowish but dont let that put you off.
Couldn't fault this hotel in any way. So clean and clearly loved - marvelous
