We stayed for 3 nights recently as part of a tour group booking. The hotel is quite dated, however I found it to be clean and in a good location. The rooms were spacious enough and it was pleasing to have free Wifi in the room. The hotel kindly held our bags for over a week which was convenient for us while we did some side trips. They were also helpful for arranging transport options for us. The service in the restaurant was disappointing, even ordering some beers at the bar seemed to take an inordinate amount of time on multiple occasions.
I would recommend this hotel for the traveller who is not looking for luxury but who can use the room as a clean base to explore the city.
