Walking distance to several metro stations and airport bus station. Clean room, the only negative is: the shower area is too small (yet the bathroom size is ok)

Exceptional 10.0
We liked the Hotel as it was clean and suited our needs for a short break . The hotel staff were extremely helpful and recommended places to visit as well a local restaurants and bars which we found we very good.Although slightly further away from the inner city, the liberty bridge was less than a 15 minute stroll. From here you could walk along the bustling shops or visit the indoor market which must not be missed.

The most comfortable bed I have ever slept in in my lifetime. Unbelievable. Missed a full morning of tourist sights because the bed was too comfy I didn't want to get out. The gentleman on reception who checked us in was incredibly helpful, gave us many tips and recommendations. If you have mobility issues the reception and ground floor rooms are up one flight of stairs, but as it is a historic building, this is the same for many of the central hotels. The rooms have a plain neutral decor so don't reflect the historic style but were spotlessly clean and spacious.

It is not very central but it is walkability. Very clean room but in stairs was smelling like mould. Guys in reception were very friendly.
