It's hard not to like this hotel. It's in an ideal location, easy walking distance to most things worth visiting but not in the midst of the maddening and noisy center. Free breakfast prepared to order, free drinks all day, afternoon wine and beer social and free minibar. The staff is courteous and helpful and were knowledgable about local restaurants...
