        • The location in excellent and the reception staff were helpful in ordering a taxi. The room and the hotel was clean and well maintained, the price was good as included the continental style breakfast. The beds were really comfortable.

        • The location is great and nice little bar for a drink and loads of good restaurants nearby. The hotel is very handy for shopping and staff on the front desk are very friendly and helpful. Perhaps the rooms on the other side might be quieter.

          Breakfast very poor.
