Good location for exploring the city. No parking.
Big hotel located right at the center of the city. Great for exploring the city by foot. Old style building (actually built at 1956). We got a small but nice and comfortable room. No views from the small window. Its not exactly clear why this hotel deserves a "5 star' rating. No pool or special services. No parking ! (We were told that the parking outside the hotel belongs to the city and we were charged 15 Euro per day for parking).
