This cute hotel is right on/off the main square - be sure to look up (re: second floor) for the sign, or you'll miss which corner it's on! If you're at the bottom of the square (with the palace at the top) the hotel is on the left hand side, just after the first cafe. We certainly couldn't find it right away since we didn't know what we were looking for, but if you've gotten to the main town hall, you went too far.
Location is great when you're staying and on foot, but if you have a car, call and ask and PLAN for where you're parking. We didn't think ahead that they validate parking at a particular garage, so we parked at the wrong one for the weekend. On a normal day, it seems easy to get to the hotel by car- go up the main drag in old town to the square, and take your first left as there does seem to be a street that you can pull up next to, but due to some festival that weekend, the street was blocked and we couldn't get to the hotel. We had to park and carry our things over (about a 10 minute walk.) Maybe it would have been less had we parked at the "right" parking place.
Our room was on the 2nd floor and was super tiny since we got the least expensive rate. It fit just the bed, a desk and just enough room for our luggage. But it was clean and snug, the shower was quite small and narrow in our room, but my in-laws had a bigger room with a tub. The soaps were really nice!
We skipped the breakfast (so expensive) and found nice places in the square or around the city to get our petit dejuner menu.
Only thing was that food festival was happening in the square, so it was somewhat noisy with the loudspeaker during this time. At least it was quieter at night.
