We booked the Galaxy based on price not location, as we don't mind waking (even if it is bitterly cold!!) and we weren't disappointed.
The good: lovely modern hotel, polite and very helpful staff, excellent buffet breakfast, and great value for money. Wifi wasn't included but the lovely gent on the front desk gave us a code free of charge which was a bonus. The hotel is a couple of minutes walk from a fairly large shopping centre too which is handy.
The only thing that might put you off is the walking, around 10 mins to the Jewish quarter, 25 mins to the old town and a good 5-10 mins to the nearest useable tram stop. BUT the taxis are very cheap if you decide on that option, we just used the walk to burn off all the lovely chocolate we ate!
Would definitely recommend.
