We stayed in the Comfort Suite for 5 nights, and it was absolutely perfect for what we wanted, considering the amazing price we got it for. Lush little apartment style room, with fancy upstairs wood based bedroom (but watch out for those support beams!). Comfy couches and seats too for after those long walks or just lazy days.
You are only about 10/15 minute walk from the main square, but with so many beautiful sites and old streets just off it, you can walk for miles/hours, then remember that you still have to walk back out of town again.
The cleaning standards weren't up to much. There were 2 glasses in the room, which were both filthy on arrival. Layers of dust everywhere, the bed only made once and the towels were never replaced our whole stay. And for a 5 night stay, that's a little bit long to expect anyone to reuse towels. Thankfully we were travelling a lot, so had our own with us, but the room's towels were never replaced even after days of being left in the bathroom. So would recommend bringing a spare like we did to avoid that issue. Also, very strange, but barely a single lamp in the room worked. Not exactly the end of the world, just another indicator than maintenance/cleaning not high on the agenda.
Although it is apartment-like, there is no cooking facilities, so we ate out for most meals, and there was a restaurant area at the reception, so this was not an issue. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room though, so we were reliant on the restaurant for this.
For the foodies...the restaurant area food was delicious for what it was, but it was very basic. The first evening we ate in, everything we picked from the menu was unavailable. We were recommended alternatives which were basically a big slab of grilled chicken and chips (no sauces or sides available), and pasta in a very basic cream sauce. Again tasty, but certainly not close to what we ordered so a little disappointing for our first night in, especially when we were still asked to pay the original prices for what we had picked.
So all in all, exceptional value for the money spent, with room for improvement on basic standards, but we would definitely stay here again. The staff appeared a little stand offish at first, but after a day or 2 we all warmed to each other and they were very pleasant and helpful.
