    Very convenient location, free Internet, welcome drink.

    The room was quite small, even for European standards, single bed of 90cm width. Very limited in terms of toiletteries (only handsoap and shower gel), very basic coffee/tea making facilities. Breakfast rather basic.

    Great location. Close to train station but also in the heart of downtown. Breakfast had a great variety. Was given a complementary drink ticket on arrival. Air conditioning was a great plus since street was a bit noisy to have the windows open - but quiet when closed - good soundproofing. We got a great deal on Booked.net

    Very good

    I have particularly appreciated the free access to Internet through an efficient WiFi system available everywhere in the hotel. The staff was attentive and responded always kindly to several demands.The location is fantastic, in one of the most lively (relatively) narrow streets of the old town, with everything within a short strall. The accessibility from the station can hardly be better.

    I have less appreciated the small size of the room and the hot temperature that lasted during the night in spite of my efforts to use the aircon in a way that would not kill me with an ice-cold draught.

    Location was perfect for exploring the old city. Surprisingly it is just a block from the Parliament Square. It is also close to many restaurants with outdoor seating.

    Very good

    Staff very helpful and good location of the hotel. Nice room with bath and breakfast was very good.

    With air conditioning and the windows closed, the room was very quiet. However we do not like air conditioning, and with the windows open, there was obviously more noise. I would recommend the hotel, but warn others that they must use the air conditioning.
