The hotel is perfectly located on the edge of the center of the old city within easy walking distance of shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, etc. It is also just two blocks from the central station, tram lines, and airport bus stops. The hotel is oddly old-fashioned. It is the only modern city-center hotel I have ever stayed in where you leave your room key with the desk clerk, like in old movies.
Note that the rooms are not air conditioned.
Note also that the "single" rooms are truly tiny, with barely space to turn around, and that they allot you only *1* towel (and don't necessarily have extras available on request).
The staff were pleasant and of course available 24 hours a day to let you have your key so you can get into your room. The hotel is strangely both charming and functional at the same time, and the location really is perfect. No problems, but certainly not luxury.
