This hotel was booked for us by someone who lives nearby. It is basic accommodation. There are less than 10 rooms, so be sure to phone ahead and reserve.
The rooms on the second floor or the third floor are the best. On the second floor, see if you can get the room at the front with a window looking onto the street. It is nice to be able to open the window and get some breeze. Also the inner rooms tend to be damp in the winter, and the towels and handwashed items do not dry in the damp air. A lttle breeze is helpful. The street is very quiet so don't worry about noise, and this room is bigger than the others for the price.
A plus is the sitting room on the main floor with free coffee, drinking water, and free internet. Some mornings they have sweet rolls as well. They supply very little toilet paper, so bring your own.
The charm of the old hotel is part of the pleasure in staying there.
