Room we had was at front of building. Walls are so thick that you don’t hear anything well at least we didn’t. Hope this helps.

Hi Sarah, I’m unsure if the rooms had air con. I meant that the rooms were too warm with the heating on. It is a cosy hotel. Just mail to make sure your room has air con maybe beforehand :)
