Great staff and good location.

Pros: Staff was wonderful (and spoke English), variety at breakfast was very good, room was clean and modern, the patio was relaxing.
Cons: We enjoyed Hotel Spalentor the way it was.
Location: Location was good. Some restaurants and shops were nearby. Most are a short distance away through charming and beautiful old city areas.
We stayed two nights at the Hotel Spalentor and had a wonderful time. Staff is very helpful, location was good to many things to see. We enjoyed the evening view of the tower from our balcony. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious.
