The hotel is located in the old town area, with view to the left up to the castle hill. Probably some high rooms may catch a glimps of the castle, but I doubt it to be direct view, since all houses are same level there and should block the view. My room surely didn't have had any view like that, but was more like a small appartment: corridor, writing desk room, sleeping room and bath room. Well the whole hotel is more old fashioned, traditional and yes: not wheelchair compatible at all. On the search for my room after checkin I also did discover some rooms on floors, that you cannot reach by the elevator, but need to go out on 2nd or 3rd floor, walk down the corridor to the very end, turn right and climb up other stairs to reach your rooms corridor ! Anyhow if you read their website with pictures and history, you wouldn't expect it to be entirely modernized. If you are not going there for a central location inside a historical hotel, I'd recommend another (modern) hotel outside, sorry to say.
I was happy with my appartment - like room, I did like the location in the inner city. Currently they are doing some renovation work in the old city center, so roads are directed a bit strangely and parking may be a problem. The hotel offers parking also in the courtyard.
The furniture of the rooms is mostly old style, traditional, past time, historical... I liked it as an alternative compared to all look alike modern hotels. I guess none of their rooms will look 100% the same, already the building structure and the location of the rooms cannot allow an identical layout => I would really one day have a tour through all of their rooms and research on my theory ;-)))
The breakfast was very nice with great variety, the restaurant also looked nice. But I did prefer some beer gardens along the riverside more.
My final conclusion is: even though not being cheap it's an excellent hotel. But surely not everybody likes that "old stuff"...
