6/10 Good

Good for 1-2 nights
Nice small hotel in the city center. Location is perfect. Some rooms have a nice view on the church. However, walls are thin and beds&pillows are not comfortable at all. Check-in deposit 25€.

8/10 Very good

I really liked the location of the hotel it was ideally located for easy access to the old town. The hotel looks like it is built into the old city wall which is clearly visible in the breakfast room. Service on the front desk was good. Breakfast was adequate. I found the room adequate but a little small. The single bed was uncomfortable and there was a lot of noise from outside the hotel like refuse vehicles and leaf blowers which started operating early in the morning. I would stay again but would upgrade to a better room. Pricing was fair.

Behind my bed huge piece of the wall was missing, but when I complained the girl at reception said it was designers idea.... The toilet has a urine smell even though it looked clean. +Surprisingly breakfast was lovely, a lot to choose from and for any taste. Loved it!!
