Good 6.0
This is a very basic hotel. The beds were comfortable, but the rooms were very dated. The breakfast was really just bread, cheese, and yogurt. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Hotel very convenient for the centre and close to a lively market on Saturday evenings. Excellent breakfast buffet on the 5th floor with outside patio and great views of the city and beyond. Room was good with all the required facilities, including wifi and fridge. Hotel provided a free pass for the local metro, which was very helpful. Good value for money.
