The hotel was located centrally, but was like a maze! A mixture of different buildings on different levels, held together by corridors. We kept getting lost,

Hotel in need of refurbishment.

Location: Good central location below cathedral
We were put in an out building which meant walking through the rain to get to the main hotel. Our room was on the ground floor with a window facing a pavement and road, which meant the room was hot as we did not want to open the window for security reasons and was also noisy. Furthermore, there was a lot of noise from people moving in the room above.
