Excellent location, handy for airport connections and old city. Open access to PC and printer in foyer, very useful. Breakfast fine except for scrambled eggs... possibly re-hydrated, not what you would expect in a 4* hotel. Avoid room 104 as it has no air extraction in the bathroom which may lead to unpleasant odours in the bed room
