The hotel was recommended by our friends - we chose it because of the location, the terrace and the style. The hotel is in a quiet street just in the centre, but somehow away from the tourists' beaten paths. The street has several very authentic restaurants and small shops. The old building is beautiful and nicely renovated, however would need a refreshment.
The room itself was very small, again posing the usual problem - how do 2 people walk/stand in the room at the same time and where do they put their suitcases. The shower was big and spacious, but with no place for putting your toiletries.
I was quite disappointed by the terrace - the view is excellent, but the palettes that they use as chairs and tables are quite rotten (they could get some new for free, I suppose) and even worse, the terrace is accessible only till 10 p.m. I would have liked to use it in the evening, for a relaxing glass of wine or a cigarette, unfortunately, for some bizarre reasons it was not possible :). Wi-fi doesn't work in the terrace or in the rooms.
We didn't have breakfast in the hotel.
