Lets start with this is not 5 star, you get what you pay for, this is a standard, clean and perfectly located hotel, staff are brilliant and helpful, breakfast is usual continental. This is functional and nothing more, so if that's what you want, book it.

never saw anything resembling picture ,breakfast fine but had to walk from another apartment block .The rooms were clean if old fashioned and the electrics were suspect to say the least .The hotel was situated 5 minutes from the town center but the walk at back night required negotiating the ladies of the night.
