Many good things all within easy reach.
Posted Sep 30, 2016
We had 2 rooms for 8 days and for most things, suited us fine. Located on a main street, it was easy to find but rooms at the front were noisier than the back. When I come again, I'll get a taxi from the airport and not hire a car as the city is so compact and there's so much to see and do within easy reach. Plus the fact that the tram, train and subway systems are so: cheap, frequent and convenient, it made my car hire and parking fees seem like an unneccessary extravegance. The hotel staff all seemed to speak about 3 or more languages and couldn't have been any more helpful. There were no tea making facilities - which we sorely missed - nor any proper bar and lounge areas. But, it made us look harder for good places to eat in the evenings, and we managed to find new places every night within walking distance. We used the number 22 tram stop round the corner by the KFC whenever we wanted to travel nearer the river.
