    Great location - beware of very loud rooms

    Warning: if you want two twin beds, you will be on the extremely noisy walk-street side of the building. We barely got any sleep on a Friday night because it was so loud. It was somewhat better during the week, but still LOUD!

    This property was clean and the breakfast each morning was wonderful. Also they offer guests a wi-Fi hotspot which was truly a lifesaver when exploring the city.

    Best main street hotel

    Had 1st floor room facing the street with a working window and blinds. Excellent European breakfast with fresh made bacon,eggs and lunch meat/cheese plate. Hot tea delivered to table by kind workers.Desk help was friendly and informative. Fondue dinner on street floor is to live for.
