Excellent location for sightseeing
Posted Jan 24, 2017
We chose this for location to sights. Everything is within easy walking distance, also good public transport and taxi links. We were rather dismayed when we arrived as we were dropped at the annexe, took a tiny lift to 4th floor, and reached a closed front door with no instructions. Found a doorbell and intercom and we were told to go to building 3 doors down and take an equally small lift to main reception on 3rd floor. The reception looked tired and more like a Chinese takeaway. So we weren't expecting much of the room in the annexe. However, it faced an inner courtyard, so no traffic noise (apart from the occasional vibration of the building - possibly heavy lorry or train?). The room was not large (as those in photos) and the fittings and upholstery a bit dated, but very clean, with a good bed/mattress, crisp linen and the ensuite shower was very functional with reasonable shower pressure and good hairdryer - not as modern as those in photo and a small cubicle. We didn't have the hotel breakfast as it was in the other building and we preferred to explore locally. There are many lovely restaurants within a short walk of the hotel. We only saw staff at check in/out but he was very polite and helpful.
