Great find, clean and comfortable and good value

Merlin guesthouse was great, the staff were all very friendly and helpful, they checked each day if we wanted our room cleaned. The room was a good size, with a comfortable bed. Bathroom was a wet room, but kept very clean. Location was good, short walk to many bars/restaurants and the hop on hop off tourist bus had a stop just round the corner.

Convenient location

This is an OK hotel - nothing outstanding about it and nothing really disappointing about it. The location is convenient and quiet. The staff friendly and helpful. The room is generally Comfortable and OK. There was no minibar but there was a cold water dispenser in the hallway. Bed was comfortable enough. Internet connection was OK. The hotel didn't appear to have any lifts, but the guest rooms seemed to all be situated on the first and second floors, so not too bad really.

Pros: Quiet
