Old-fashioned Residencial in the pedestrian centre
Posted Sep 27, 2014
A few minutes walk from the train and bus stations, on a popular pedestrianised street leading from the river to the town hall square and dominated by the Templar castle and former convent, which overlook the city centre. The staff are very welcoming (and speak good English). My room was a bit small but otherwise fine.
There is a tourist road-train that offers to take you round the main sights - most of them can be visited easily on foot, but it does avoid the steep climb up to the castle gate: tickets are valid for three hours. There is a wall-walk round the old castle, but the convent buildings are also well worth a visit - I paid 3 euros as a pensioner. Toilets in two locations, cafe.
Plenty of good eating and drinking places in the old town but avoid the bread and other starters if offered with a meal unless you want to pay for them.
