Hotel is a lengthy walk from the main train station coming in from airport (30 minutes away), but you can catch the underground (2 stops) and exit across the street at the Theater area. It is central to walk to the harbour, and up the hill to the main shopping streets (in 2 separate directions).
It is starting to look a bit on the tired side, but it still was a nice historic feel. Convenient good-quality Theatercafe (full restaurant, not a cafe) connected by a hallway.
Rooms were fine, historical feel. I knew what I was getting when I booked....if I wanted modern/chic, I would have chosen elsewhere.
I can't fault the service...even the staff in the hallways were friendly, accommodating and always asking if we needed anything. Breakfast was sizable but expected.
