8/10 Very good

The hotel room was one of the smallest that I ever stayed. However, it was clean, centrally located, had pleasant personnel and a good breakfast.

Why chocolate?
Felt more like student digs. Small room, could have removed the safe and mini bar to give an easier access to the bed. Chocolate references in the reception display and colours but nothing else. Reception very small, felt crowded with only 1 other guest. Staff very friendly, knowledgable about the city and helpful.

Great Hotel
Great Hotel. Would benefit from a fan to move some air on hot days but otherwise 10 out 10. Clean, pleasant decor, good range of amenities and the staff were polite and warm on their interactions with good knowledge of the local area.
