Absolutely AMAZING location right in the center of old town. It's about a 2 minute walk from old town square (where the clock is) and a 15 minute walk from the main train station. The room, bathrooms and common areas were clean and the beds were very comfortable. Staff was extremely nice and helpful giving us food recommendations as well as using the locker storage and common area facilities after check out (it was perfect to have access to a free bathroom in the center. Overall awesome stay! - American Girl
