The hotel is literally in the center of old town - easily walkable to shopping, bars, restaurants and the travel information is next door (and open at night!). Parking is difficult anywhere in the historic area but a parking garage is less than 2 blocks away

We stayed on new years eve for two nights. The room was stylish and comfortable. There was some noise from the busy street below which I imagine could be annoying for some people, however it didn't keep us awake on which was probably the busiest night of the year so not something I had any complaints about. Staff seemed friendly...

I checked in here after having a HORRIBLE experience at another Hostel called The Loft. The staff is friendly and professional. I especially recall ´Laura' a beautiful Icelandic woman that did everything she could to accommodate me.Highly recommend staying here....swing by the Drunk Rabbit after for a pint at an awesome Irish Pub. There is also some great shopping nearby...

Booked city center as we stayed in 2013 and it was fab - couldnt fault it. Returned in Jan 17 and this is not the same hotel. Staff quite disinterested. Breakfast not up to same standard. No mini bar. No Micro Bar (as still advertised on web site). Room not cleaned. Toiletries (as adverised for deluxe room) consist of refillable...

perfect location for seeing the city, we had a corner room on the 5th floor with a charming outlook on all sides. good temperature control in the room, light and airy with plenty of space (it was a superior double room) and was very happy until the "duff duff" music started outside and when it finally stopped the screaming drunks...

We stayed on New Year's Eve, and as there is a night club next door the bass of the music went on till 4am. Given the day, it didn't bother us, but it's hard to gauge whether it would be loud on other days - so just heed this warning that there is a club next door. The rooms were...

our room faced the street and right across from a club that stayed open very late. Otherwise, very centrally located but so are many other hotels without the same noise issue. Breakfast was okay, nothing special - basic offerings.

Great location, right in the centre of town. This does mean on Friday and Saturday nights the rooms are very noisy as there is a bar directly below. Recommend to ask for a room higher up and not facing main street (although still expect noise). Staff are very friendly and helpful. Location is perfect, everything is walking distance and it's...

Extremely loud on weekends due to bar next door. They gave us ear plugs which helped! No issue on weekdays. Otherwise great location and very friendly & helpful staff. Rooms were nothing fancy but fine.
