Had a great stay at the Castello City, staff were very friendly & helpful. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and the bathroom very large. Aircondition worked a treat. Breakfast was very varied & very filling with everything fresh & homemade, no packaged marmelades etc. The views from rooftop bar/restaurant were superb.

We stayed here for a week, and the staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, although maybe a little small, and the bar/restaurant on the top floor has a great view. It's only a 10 or 15 minute walk to the centre, and you get to find some great local places on the way to the centre.
