We chose this hotel because of the good TA reviews and its excellent location between the main squares and the chic area of the city which meant you could walk anywhere interesting in 5 minutes (apart from the afternoon when 5,000 Geordies were there for the football and it took twice as long because of congested streets and pavements).
The hotel itself far exceeded our expectations and was really beautiful inside with loads of clever interior decor touches that made every room a pleasure to regard.
Breakfast was good and there was no problem loading oneself up for the day to follow with a good selection of cereals, meats, cheeses, breads etc.
We would definitely stay again but might give the taxis a miss next time. If you can read a map you can walk it in 15-20 minutes to/from the station; the taxi took twice as long due to the ever present dustcarts blocking the narrow streets.More
