Had a short break at this hotel and it was excellent. Our room was at the back where there wasn't much of a view, but as we were out mostly that wasn't an issue. And being at the back meant there was no chance of being disturbed by noise from the Cathedral square. There was a Christmas market on while...

Great location to explore different parts of the city. Clean, good sized rooms. We had a terrace which was well used but suffered rather from road noise, it didn't bother us as we were on a city break! Breakfast was worth paying for as it set us up for the day. Staff were all friendly & helpful. PS: if you're...
