Cons:No coffee or non caloric sweetener in room

6.2 Okay
Pros:the location it was right in the middle of nearly everything we went to go and see. It was also right next to the train station which is how we arrived.
Cons:the cold shower on Saturday and Sunday that was not fun. If you are going to charge premium price than it better be a premium hotel. It certainly not a 4 star hotel given the maintenance of their equipment. They need to replace the boiler, I heard it was not the first time they only had cold showers
