“Good location, not much else.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

I was in 2 minds when booking this hotel and went for location over quality. Big mistake really, should have gone for both and paid extra.
The Hotel is very old fashioned as stated previously, and has no character. The room we had was very big, which was good and had plenty of cupboard space, but the furniture was so outdated. The wardrobes had keys in them, that kept falling out. They were clean. The curtains were not full enough to cover the window, so you had the daylight every morning bright in your room.
The bathroom is a good size, has a bath, but only a hand held shower, which was not good.
There are no other facilities that you can make use of, so once you are up, you are out all day.
There is a very small reception area on the 1st floor, near the " breakfast room" and that is it. The breakfast was very poor and we only had it on the first morning, going out to pay extra on the other 2 days was preferable.
The BIG + is the location, although I am sure there are much better hotels in just as good a locaction.
Unless you are really on a budget, I would pay extra and stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Room 305 was big

Inexpensive, but not worth the savings! I think the last major updating was when they added electricity. Limited outlets in the rooms, furniture was old and not comfortable. Hard to find the hotel.
The only redeeming qualities were - only 1 block from main market place and their breakfast was included with the rooms.

Room Tip: Don't go by price alone

Stayed here last week. Really enjoyed it. Supernice and helpfull staff. Location perfect.
Not your ordinairy boring Mercure, Holiday-Inn etc. A bit outdated but therefore way more charming (building with character). We had a very large room (202) with bath (and extra bed?). Street-side rooms bit noisy, but dubble windows 'll fix that.
Got a free voucher for one of the big Bathhouses/Spa in town... very nice. Lockers were full, but we got a private locker with the voucher (and take that massage when you're there...worth it!)

Enjoy!
