While this hotel is in a great location, just behind the Old Town Hall Square, and some charming aspects, it has many rooms that are simply not close to 4 star level - we stayed with a group in early June and while some rooms are very large, others were tiny and extremely poorly designed, created out of a large closest. Our room had twin beds in line - foot to foot with about 1 metre of walking space down a corridor to a tiny bathroom. It faced a small courtyard which is great unless other residents decide to have a late night party...
The first room that we had had a hole punched in the wall.
For some unknown reason the hotel room amenities include a box of condoms???
Most rooms were supplied with 5 tissues daily and several rooms were without glasses after 4 days and repeated requests to the front desk.
Breakfast was adequate but certainly not the best that we experienced in the Baltic region. The front desk tried to help with our rooms but was not well trained. The hotel charges for internet and for their safety boxes - not what I would expect from a First Class hotel in this region.
I would not rate this as a 4 star hotel and certainly would not recommend it to friends
