Less than 15 minutes walk downhill into the centre of town - considerably more time back to the hotel uphill (or about 5 euro in a taxi) !
There is a "snack bar" in the property which definitely gives an added buzz, and means that there is food and drink available until midnight every day - mostly reasonably priced (although big bottles of water aren't exactly cheap at 1.90 eur). On the subject of food - breakfast is a simple affair of rolls, cheese and sliced meat (or jam) with yoghurt and coffee/tea. It's fine, as long as you don't expect too much.
The same applies to other aspects too - the bedrooms range from average sized to generous (ground floor ones in the annex were bigger), and are reasonably clean with the bedding fairly comfortable (the beds themselves were good and firm). The bathrooms were fine - a little bit tired in places, but with good shower pressure.
Wifi was very patchy in the bedrooms but stronger in the bathrooms and outside - and it was free!
The staff were very pleasant, some with very good english, others less so.
