Not bad, but not the best.
The hotel itself was in a great location - a short walk to tourist attractions and surrounded by some great restaurants and bars. The breakfast included was great and the staff were helpful; however, my issue was the room. The bed was only a double and was quite small for two. It would be great to see a wider range of bed options in the future :)

Room types need to be checked carefully
Room booked was for bed plus sofa. Room provided was bed only and hotel stated that room type/request was not advised by Hotels.com even though room types had different rates.
