At less than EUR100 a night for 2 people, this hotel was great value for what it was. It probably has one of the best gyms I've ever seen for a hotel, about the same size and same equipment as an average Fitness First.

From outside you don't give much to the hotel but once inside, the classic decor and the good staff/service, takes away the first not so good impression. The lobby has a classic decor, a bit dark, and we were welcomed with a glass of Porto wine. Fast check in and attentive service. We stayed on the 11th F, the room...
