Stayed here for three nights at the end of September. Firstly, the location is the main advantage of staying in this hotel. Its situated on the edge of Old Town, next to the trams, bus station and is just about far enough away from the noise that must blight other hotels and guesthouses. The main sights of Old Town are all within walking distance, so there isn't any need to use any of the very over-priced taxi's.
The rooms are ok, bed's small but comfy and the shower in my room was very nice indeed. I would say they are adequate for the price that we paid.
Breakfasts were included but it was pretty average.
One problem i did have was, and I'm not saying this is the hotels fault, that there was a group of 20-25 Brit's on a stag party staying here and around 3-4am every night there was a tremendous noise outside full of expletives and football chanting.
The staff were helpful in the sense that they dealt with any queries without fuss. Hotel transfers were well done. Internet was fairly slow but again adequate.
I would suggest that if you can pre-book a room then go for one on the higher floors. My room was on the first floor next to reception and returning revelers could be heard coming home in the late hours.
