                  • Good location and lovely decor. Staff very helpful and friendly, nice clean rooms, the food was excellent and the Czech waiter was exceptional.

                    Hotel was starting to look tired in the stairway and the shower door was also broken.

                  • Good location for partying/shopping, hotel is clean and some of the staff are particularly helpful. The bar has a nice buzz and plenty seats.

                    Rooms are old style, the hot breakfast used to be waiter served.
