    This hotel was conveniently located for our trip to Etihad Stadium. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Price was competitive. View of the city was lovely, but there was a bit of street noise on a Saturday night.

    corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
    even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
