“Nice, but too many stairs”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Okay, Spoiled American Tourist here.
+1 Clean rooms. +2 Clean facility. +3 Relatively short walk to bus stops. +4. All rooms have own bathroom. +5. Free Internet.
-1 Stairs. -2 No A/C (which is everywhere in Europe I have found) (My room did have a ceiling fan). -3. Very little street parking. -4. Not many restaurants within walking distance. -5. Expensive optional breakfast available.
I could almost give this place a 3, however, the majority of the rooms are on the third and fourth floor. Lots of stairs to climb. The rooms are clean and the beds are typical IKEA type single beds. Not sure if they have double beds; if so, none were available when I stayed there. Employees seemed to be helpful, but hard to locate at times. Room charge is decent if climbing stairs is not an issue. They provide an optional breakfast which is convenient, but I thought it was a bit pricey for juice, sandwich fixings, yogurt selection, hard boiled eggs, etc.

Room Tip: One room on top floor has an outside "patio."
