Very good 8.0
Good value
Good quality and decent value 4 star in a fairly expensive city for hotels. Standard rooms can be small and dark. I took a Superior room - bigger and more natural light. A bit pricier (c. €30pn) but worth considering if space and light important to you. Great and safe feeling location. Friendly, helpful staff. Lovely roof terrace with small plunge pool. Comp snacks and drinks PM and evening a nice touch thought they are pretty basic.
