Good 7.2 From 99 reviews

Good 6.0
A little challenging to gain access if your arrive later than 6:00. Also never saw anyone in the office because I had to leave earlier. Lastly, the entrance turns into a club entrance late at night so don’t be alarmed/confused like we were. Also you can hear the music from the club very easily in the hotel.

Rowdy, run down and tatty.
Worn down. Not the greatest service. Nightlife heavy area with lots of street noise. Beware of the super loud music from the club on the ground floor, resonating up through the walls.

Small hotel. Centrally located
OK hotel - but extremely small room. Nice bathroom. Dangerous small stair. Located in the city centre close to nice restaurants and the flower market

City center charmer
Exception location where you’re 15 minute walk from all areas of interest. They accommodated our early check in needs without us having to ask. Beautifully appointed rooms that are of course small but we had a lovely view and they provide everything you need including converters and Nespresso machine. The only draw back is the incredibly steep flight of stairs with no lift. I was able to get my huge bag up but I’m young and fit. If you’re older you would most likely not be able to make it up the steep incline. You can hear the music from the club below in your room but it wasn’t loud enough to where it kept me awake and I am a light sleeper. I look forward to staying at this hotel again!
