My second stay here and this place is great. Perfect location, some noise from train close to hotel, but ok because it does stop. overnight. Many restaurants, good cooked breakfast and nice people. great part of town and close to everything.

Very Good 8.0
Great area, small rooms, good value
The location was perfect with a lot of fun restaurants within walking distance. The staff went out of their way to help us and resolve the issue of not giving us enough beds for our reservation. I do think breakfast should be included. We had to pay extra for breakfast and then they ran out and we had to buy breakfast again at another location. We were there for a work event, so our main purpose was to sleep there. There was not a usable safe in our room, but I felt the hotel itself was very secure. I would not want to hang out long in the small rooms, but it served our purpose and the price was good for what we got.

Great for short stay
Pretty little house with basic but adequate facilities. Good value for the city. Service very good, you need a little spanish though, especially if you have an Irish accent 😉
