Great location for seeing the Old Town but the hotel is average at best. We asked for the "Superior Belle Vita" rooms. They were small. We had to stack the bags on top of the closet to get them out of the way. Nothing fancy or superior about the rooms that we could see. The staff was pleasant but not well trained or managed. One of the girls behind the desk continued on a personal call on her cell phone while she sold us stamps. Also had some trouble getting ice from the desk staff. Both rooms had the smell of sewer gas in the bathroom. We overheard another guest complaining of the same smell in her room. Not sure what that is about.
One of the perks of staying at the Meriton Old Town is being able to use the spa facilities at the Meriton Grand Hotel. It is worth the walk to use the spa. They have four different saunas, several pools and fully equipped gym. Very nice facility that is well maintained and a great way to relax.
The breakfast is also quite average. More like what you would expect in an American hotel. Not much to get excited about. Parts of the building and the restaurant are built on historic city walls. In that way the hotel has its charm and fits into the historic city. If you are looking for creature comforts and a well managed establishment you should keep looking. If you want historic, a great location and don't mind small rooms at a very reasonable price, this might be the place.
