Hotel Garden Palace is in a great location if you want to be close to the Old Town and bus and train stations; however, the room we stayed in was much in need of a renovation. Our room was a suite on the 4th floor and was quite large but extremely shabby. The carpet was stained, the wallpaper was peeling off the walls, the paint on the window sills was chipped, and there were holes in the drapes. The bed was uncomfortable, the mattress was ripped at the seams and looked about 30 years old, and only two small flat pillows were provided for our king-sized bed. Furthermore, we were greeted by about 20 small houseflies that were swarming around our chandelier when we first entered the room. Harmless, yes, but it took us about a half hour to shoo them out the window. We kept our windows closed our entire stay because flies would immediately enter the room if we didn't. Booking.com has the Hotel Garden Palace listed as a 4-star hotel - in my opinion, this is more of a 2-star accomodation. I would not recommend it to friends.
