Great breakfast and location
I have stayed before and I chose it because of location. It is a bit outdated and should. have a renovation. The view from the brakfast area is great. The breakfast had everything I needed and more. So many marmalades, chocolate spreads, cheeses, bread. Great breakfast

Great location, clean hotel but old
Staff were very corteous - room was very small with a tiny window on a courtyard so very dark. The room was super clean and the shower very strong so it made up for the rest. The hotel is just very old, but well maintained. Great location
