This hotel is quite old. From the 1930, should one believe pictures on the wall here and there. It has been renovated, and appears quite modern.
There are a few peculiarities, however.
The elevator is said to be able to carry 4, but they must be very good friends! The entrance to the elevator is only 55 cm wide, so a wheelchair will most likely not go in!
Some of the rooms are 2-level, with the bed on sort of a loft, where you will also find the bathroom. The stairs up there are quite steep and may not be fitting for elderly.
Internet, from which this is written, works fine at the lower level, but not at the upper. A total of 24 hours seems to be allowed for free. The counter stops, when you sign off!
There is a small kitchen on the lower level with a refrigerator/minibar. and a sink, but nothing else. The fridge is quite noisy!
The view from my room was towards a closed in yard with tall houses all around.
Breakfast is included and contains a variety of breads croissants, cake, cereals and fruit. The juice, however is quite watered down!
