Pros: The location was ideal for walking to almost everything a tourist would want to do. The kitchenette was great.
I was very pleased with my choice in accommodation. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable with nicely updated décor. And rooms were well sound proofed so I wasn't disturbed by others.

Location: Shops, restaurants, museum, and gifts shops are close by.
I went during November when the tourist season was over. The staff was so attentive and the room was truly amazing having a separated bedroom and kitchen/living room area. My friend and I really enjoyed that separate space for more privacy and also being able to store food and cook it when we did not want to go out to eat.
