The staff made the difference at this hotel. Front desk staff were eager to help and volunteer information, arrange late checkout, store luggage, etc. Breakfast room staff hurried to clear tables and restock when the 7 tour groups descended at the same time.
Location was great for sightseeing. 3 blocks to tram to/from train station. Same to ferry to museums, fortress, park. Just a few blocks more to palace, museums. Street was quiet, though.
First room for overnight stay was small, but adequate. Offered upgrade for $40 more, but turned down. The room was clean, but the air conditioning was insufficient and we only had one small window overlooking the street. Not enough to circulate any air and we suffered. We told the clerk the problem and that we were returning later in the week. He said he would put us on the 9th floor. The room we were given when we returned was on the 9th floor, a larger room (the upgrade) with an air conditioner that had a higher speed fan, cooler air, and a larger window. It still had difficulty offsetting the heat wave, but it was bearable at least. So, the better rooms are better for the a/c as well as the space.
