The Empire Hotel is central to everywhere you might want to go. Across from the train station, close to supermarkets, museums and cafes. The rooms are exactly as listed, basic but very clean with a comfortable bed. The bathrooms are shared, but looked brand new and were spotless. The menu for the dining room is decent and the food I had was good. All staff were friendly and efficient. If you're looking for budget accommodation and don't mind shared amenities, The Empire Hotel is definitely worth considering.
