First, as others have said, the location of the hotel is excellent. I was on the 5th floor facing away from the street, so as far as street noise goes the room was quiet (and had a nice view overlooking the rooftops). As others have said, the walls are thin and the floors creak: you can definitely hear your neighbors. The rooms aren't huge, but are adequate. The staff at the desk were friendly and helpful at all times.
The room was kept clean (bathroom, sheets), and the shower has good pressure and temperature. The mattress of the bed was quite saggy. No in-room tea or coffee. Wifi is slooooowwww. You can only log in once per account - so if you have a phone and a laptop, it will log out one of the two. But forget about doing anything more than basic email and Google maps.
The breakfast is OK (coffee, fresh and good quality orange juice, fresh bread and a couple of small pastries, and an apple dessert), but definitely not worth 8 euro. There are multiple cafes nearby where you can get better, cheaper breakfast. Overall I might have rated three stars if I'd got a better price, but the room was booked by an agency and I was charged full price.
