The hotel is right in the middle of the old town, cobbled streets, squares and cafes all around and a few steps from the opera house.
The public areas of the hotel are very smart (bar and lounge), there is a computer to use as well as wifi in the rooms. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the bathroom I had was very nice with designer basin!
The breakfast buffet had a huge choice, lots of fresh fruit, different kinds of bread and rolls as well as toast and lots of hot dishes ( I didn't try them as the weather was so hot).
The service was friendly and efficient.
The restaurant serves meals in the evening and gave guests 10% discount and although it was good, it was rather pricey. Eating out in the town was a better bet.
I would recommend it wholeeartedly for a short stay.
