A decent accomodation.
Rooms are clean. So clean that you can eat off them. You got your standard cupboards, desk, TV. Windows might look down to Old Town or to a blank wall, which was my case.
There's really nothing that I can complain about. Heating was awesome. Rooms were clean. Beds were comfortable. Hotel looked and feel nice with it's Victorian age decor. Sadly, I didn't get to taste the breakfast, but I've read that it's delicious. Definitely would stay here again.
Besides - it's Old Town. It's made for tourists. Every street hosts a plethora of shops, bars, pubs, restaurants and so forth.
But keep in mind - NO ELEVATOR. So getting around to 3-rd and 4th floor will be a hassle.
No room service, either due to the lack of said elevator or due to the fact that it's too difficult for the staff to move around.
I booked an economy room with twin bed setting. Economy room means that you are going to sleep on the 4th floor, just under the roof. Which can be really neat when it rains and pours outside or if you really don't want to leave your hotel room at all, but it has it's downsides since the rooms are on the 4th floor and there's no elevator.
Also, building is over 500 years old and it has maintained it's old-timey feel with staircases that will make you sweat.
Anyway. I booked the room. Got on the 4th floor. Got into my room. Very cozy. Loved it. Perfect.
But.. It was on 4th floor and I was going out with my partner. Also, they managed to give us a double bed, instead of 2 single beds.
Called reception. They promised to fix the situation immediately and also I asked to be moved onto the first floor.
They did it. Got myself a free upgrade to standard room.
Standard rooms are bigger, but.. since they are bigger it doesn't really mean that they are better. Really high ceilings. Like 4 meters. No decorations really. So the room will echo a bit and feel hollow. Good for a night or two.
