The Premiere is a 10 minute walk from the main train station on a busy main road next to a number of larger chain hotels. It is 30% cheaper than the competition but you soon see why.
The location is fair, next to loads of restaurants and bars on one of the main roads running through the city. Traffic noise is a problem at night and in the early morning, as are the shouts from late night revellers.
There is a keypad security entrance door and then the first problem appears...two flights of steep, stone steps to the reception, no lift. Do not book if you are elderly or infirm. Reception is gained through another security door giving the feeling of a prison visit. Once inside, the decor is what I would describe as 'attempted boutique'. There are lots of dark red curtains and sunken lights but combined with cheap, dull furniture.
Check in was pleasant enough, I got a girl on her first day at the hotel and she was helpful and polite. The room (number 3) was big with a high ceiling, a little desk area and two armchairs. Good, fast wifi and tall windows allowing in lots of light. The bed was OK and I had two reasonable nights sleep notwithstanding the noise from outside.
Breakfast was average, poor choice and the coffee machine broke as I tried to use it. The second morning was better as the receptionist offered to cook me an omelette!
The main tourist attractions are a good 25 minute walk away but there are tourist buses stopping just outside the door.
Overall, not bad but there are better close by for a little more money.
