This hotel was in a good location, within walking distance to the old town and right next to a metro station. The only downside was that the hotel overlooked a square where young locals hung out at night. The room was great for what we needed. We had a junior suite so there was plenty of room for my husband and I and our two young children. The hotel although little dated was clean and the staff were helpful. Despite what has been said in other reviews I think the breakfast selection was good. The bar although a little strangely furnished (a bit like a working mens club down one end) was great for us as it was big enough to take our two young children into without disturbing the other customers. The price we paid was a bargain considering the location and facilities etc.
